Bhawna Arora, girl who had smeared ink on Chief Minister Kejriwal, will be holding a press conference in New Delhi on Wednesday. She is likely to exhume CNG scam which she mentioned while getting detained at Chhatrasal stadium after ink attack.

The incident had kicked off a political storm with several leaders claiming it to be Aam Aadmi Party’s old formula; while AAP had alleged BJP’s conspiracy in this.

The Court, on the other hand, came up with straight verdict of security lapse.

Throwing of ink on Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal was a "clear-cut case of security lapse" and Delhi Police did not behave responsibly in protecting him, a city court said.

Noting that Kejriwal was "fortunate enough that liquid contained in the bottle was simply ink", Additional Sessions Judge (ASJ) Sanjay Kumar Aggarwal said "one may imagine what would have been the situation in case, god forbid, the bottle could have contained some corrosive substance like acid etc, mixed with ink."

"If Chief Minister of Delhi is not safe, one may wonder as to what will be the fate of ordinary prudent citizens of Delhi," he wondered.

"I fail to understand as to how a bottle containing ink could not be detected during frisking. This is a clear-cut case of security lapses on part of police, especially in the circumstances when the public gathering was addressed in a walled stadium and not in an unfenced ground," the judge said.

26-year-old Bhawna Arora has been granted bail on furnishing a personal bond of Rs 10,000 with one surety of the like amount, saying "no useful purpose shall be served by keeping the applicant behind bars".
