Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal suffered an ink attack, on 4 October, late evening in Bikaner where he had gone to attend a condolence meeting. The meeting took place at local AAP leader's house.

According to a report in NDTV, Dinesh Ojha, accused the CM of being anti-national and threw ink on him outside the local AAP leader's house at 10PM.

Ojha, a student leader of the Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP), has been taken into custody, police said, NDTV reported.

Minutes after the incident, Arvind Kejriwal tweeted:

In January, a woman who belonged to a splinter group of Aam Aadmi Party had thrown ink at the CM in Delhi's Chhatrasal stadium. Commenting on the issue, Deputy CM Manish Sisodia had said that it was a BJP conspiracy because the woman was not arrested and rather was giving statements to the media.

According to reports, the AAP chief was attacked with ink for his alleged remarks on Indian Army's surgical strikes carried out across the Line of Control (LoC) in response to Uri attacks in Jammu and Kashmir.
