Probe has been ordered into an incident which took place on Kalindi Kunj road in which ink was thrown on a woman who levelled rape allegations against the son of Rajasthan Minister.
The attack took place while she was walking on the road with her mother…, reported the NDTV on Saturday, adding that the two were involved in the attack, the woman said in her complaint to the police.
After throwing “blue liquid” at her near Kalindi Kunj Road, the men fled.

“The blue liquid prima facie looks like ink. In the matter, a case under section 195 A (threatening any person to give false evidence), 506 (criminal intimidation), 323 (voluntarily causing hurt) and 34 (common intention) of the Indian Penal Code was registered at the Shaheen Bagh police station and an investigation is underway,” Deputy Commissioner of Police (Southeast) Esha Pandey said.

Delhi Commission for Women chairperson Swati Maliwal on Sunday tweeted that she would be issuing a notice to the Delhi Police to file an FIR for the attack on the woman.
“The girl who accused Rohit Joshi, son of Rajasthan Minister Mahesh Joshi of rape was thrown some substance by two unidentified people in Delhi…..@ashokgehlot51 sir, instead of saving your minister’s son, arrest him. I am issuing notice to Delhi Police for FIR on this attack (sic),” she tweeted.
