Ink attack on Kejriwal: Bassi rubbishes AAP’s claim, says ‘no security lapse’

New Delhi: Delhi Police Commissioner B.S. Bassi on Monday rubbished the Aam Aadmi Party’s accusation that he was part of a conspiracy behind the ink attack on Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and said that there was no security lapse.

“Our PRO has already given a statement. Any such allegation is misconceived and unfounded. There was no security lapse. We had taken all the necessary steps. The girl, who attacked Delhi CM with ink, has been arrested and a case has been registered against her,” he told the media here.

Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia had yesterday alleged that the ink attack on Kejriwal was orchestrated by none other but the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) at the Centre. Sisodia also claimed that the BJP scripted the attack on Kejriwal with the help of Delhi Police, which work under the Centre.

Sisodia termed the attack as major security lapse and alleged that the ‘conspirators’ could also kill AAP leaders and Cabinet Ministers.

The incident took place at an event yesterday when Kejriwal was expressing his gratitude to the people of Delhi for making the odd-even formula a success.

The woman Bhavna Arora, who belongs to the Aam Aadmi Sena, rushed close to the dais and threw ink at Kejriwal. She was immediately detained by the police. (ANI)
