On Camera: Ink Thrown at BKU Leader Rakesh Tikait in Bengaluru Event; Fight, Chaos Ensue
Visuals showed chairs being flung around and people screaming at each other after the ink attack on farmer leader Rakesh Tikait.
Bengaluru: Bhartiya Kisan Union (BKU) leader Rakesh Tikait was attacked with ink by some miscreants at an event in Bengaluru on Monday. About a dozen people barged into a press meet and threw black ink at the farmer leader when he was addressing the media. What followed was chaos at the venue with visuals showing chairs being flung around and people screaming at each other.
Tikait, the face of the farmers’ movement against the now repealed agricultural laws, had reportedly called the press meet to speak about a sting operation in which a Karnataka farmer leader was allegedly caught asking for money.
