New Delhi, Jan 17: A woman, alleging a "CNG scam" in the AAP government, threw ink at Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Sunday at a public gathering here to mark the "success" of the odd-even traffic restriction scheme but missed him.
Kejriwal, who was speaking at the Chhatrasal Stadium, in north Delhi, remained unruffled. Police detained the woman.
The woman, who identified herself as Bhaw Arora from the Aam Aadmi Party's breakaway group in Punjab, maged to reach near the stage to fling the ink.
"A very big scam has happened. I have proof. They have done CNG scam," she said
Kejriwal asked the police officials, who were seen taking the woman away, to "let her go".
"She is talking about a scam. Take papers from her. Let her go," he said.
Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia blamed the Bharatiya Jata Party and Delhi Police for the incident, saying it was a "conspiracy" to attack Kejriwal and his ministers.
"There was no security provided by Delhi Police. It is a conspiracy by the BJP and Delhi Police is also involved in it," Sisodia said after the incident.
"Who will take the responsibility if any woman or man throws acid at Delhi's chief minister where thousands of people are sitting. What if a bomb goes off," he asked.
"It is a very serious and dangerous incident. The Delhi Police were acting mere spectators at the event, where the whole Delhi cabinet was sitting. It is very astonishing that there was not even a single policeman when the woman rushed to the stage and threw ink at Kejriwal. Not even a single policeman was checking people and was looking after the security of the place," Sisodia said, while addressing reporters after the incident.
Taking on B.S. Bassi-led Delhi Police, Sisodia said, "The Delhi Police keep on shouting that there is high alert in the city. Where is the high alert? Who will take the responsibility if a person comes and throws acid at the Delhi Chief Minister and his cabinet".
"This incident only shows that the Delhi Police are ready for a deadly attack on Kejriwal. Police are not even concerned about the safety of the Chief Minister and the people of the city. The whole incident is scripted by the BJP with the help of the Delhi Police. They can even get the Chief Minister murdered. The whole incident was scripted by the Saffron Party with the help of the Delhi Police," he said.
