A person later identified as Brijesh Shukla on Monday threw ink at Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia, who returned to the city from Finland on Sunday.
The incident took place outside Lieutenant Governor Najeeb Jung’s house when Sisodia was addressing the media.
According to The Indian Express, the attacker reportedly denied having any political affiliation and said that he threw ink to show his anger over the absence of AAP ministers while Delhi was suffering from a sudden spurt in dengue and chikungunya cases in the national capital.
The Aam Aadmi Party has been facing criticism from all the opposition parties as most of its ministers were out of the city at the time of the outbreak of chikungunya and dengue in Delhi.
Lt Governor Najeeb Jung had on September 16 asked Sisodia to cut short his trip to Finland and immediately return to Delhi.
