New Delhi: The woman, who threw ink at Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal during a public meeting at the Chhatrasal Stadium here on Sunday, was released last night on a personal bail bond. She will appear before the Rohini court today.
The woman accused the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) Government of being involved in a CNG scam. 'The Odd-Even formula was positive, but behind that was a big CNG Scam, of which I have proofs. That is why I wanted to meet the Chief Minister and Gopal Raiji (Transport Minister), but they didn't agree to meet me,' said the attacker.

She further stated that in the scam, CNG stickers were issued on bike numbers. 'I will go to the court at 10 o'clock today. I will submit all papers before the court. Investigation should be done in the matter,' she added.
The woman also blamed the party volunteers of manhandling her after the attack and thanked the Delhi Police for bringing her into safety. She was, however, seen being dragged out of the venue by the policemen. The incident took place when Kejriwal was expressing his gratitude to the people of Delhi for making the Odd-Even formula a success.
The woman rushed close to the dais and threw ink at Kejriwal. She was immediately apprehended by the police. However, the Chief Minister told the cops to leave her. 'Leave her; she is talking about some scam. Please take that paper from her she is mentioning some CNG scam,' he said.
The event was organised by the AAP Government to thank the people of Delhi for making the odd-even experiment, which ended on January 15, a success.
