Man hurls shoe at Kejriwal, detained

New Delhi, April 9: A shoe was hurled at Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal while he was addressing a press conference here on Saturday. The shoe missed the target.

Ved Prakash of the Aam Aadmi Sena threw the shoe at Kejriwal, alleging fake CNG stickers were being distributed in Delhi ahead of the Odd-Even vehicular scheme. He said he had a video evidence of the "scam". The man has been detained by police after the incident.

Cars running on CNG are exempt from the Odd-Even scheme.

Delhi Transport Minister Gopal Rai condemned the incident, saying it "would not deter our aim to provide good governance and our commitment towards a cleaner environment".

"It's an act done by a frustrated man. Incidents like these keep on happening," he added.

Earlier, Bhawana Arora of the same little-known group had thrown ink on Kejriwal's face at a event held to celebrate the success of the first phase of the Odd-Even motor rationing scheme at a stadium here in January.
