Shoe hurling at politicians seems to have become a favourite tool for many attackers to vent out their frustration in a way to show their protest. Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal was attacked many times, not only shoes were thrown at him, ink attack and he was also slapped. Earlier, Kejriwal was attacked by Jitendra Pathak who was upset with him for misleading people on corruption.
Just before the general polls in 2014, an unidentified people splashed ink on him when he was moving in an open vehicle in the streets of the temple town Banaras.
In April 2014, he was slapped by an auto-rickshaw driver while campaigning in Sultanpuri, north-west Delhi. Early this year, during the Odd-Even press conference a lady named Bhavana Arora of Aam Aadmi Sena threw ink on the Delhi CM. She alleged a huge scam in distribution of CNG stickers.
