Sisodia’s ink attacker gets bail

New Delhi, Sep 23 (IANS) A man who threw ink on Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia outside Lt. Governor Najeeb Jung’s office was granted bail by a court here on Friday.

Metropolitan Magistrate Ambika Singh granted bail to Brijesh Shukla asking him to furnish a bond of Rs 15,000.

On Monday, Shukla threw ink on Sisodia when he was speaking with journalists after meeting Jung.

The ink scattered mostly on Sisodia’s left arm and a part of his face, taking the Deputy Chief Minister by surprise.

When reporters asked Shukla the reason for the ink attack, he responded: “People are dying in Delhi and you (Sisodia) prefer to go on a foreign (Finland) jaunt.”

Sisodia, who is also the Education Minister, went to Finland to study the country’s highly acclaimed educational system.

Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leaders expressed surprise that no policeman was present at the site when the attack occurred.

Shukla was said to be a resident of Karawal Nagar in northeast Delhi.
