Ink was thrown at Jammu and Kashmir MLA Engineer Rashid outside the Press Club of India here on Monday. The perpetrators have not been identified yet.
He was swiftly escorted to safety while the police took away the ink thrower.
Rashid was recently beaten up by the BJP MLAs inside the Jammu and Kashmir Assembly for allegedly hosting a beef party.
This comes close to the incident of ink being thrown at former BJP aide Sudheendra Kulkarni in Mumbai before a book launch of former Pakistani minister.
The protesters, who threw the ink, were shouting that Engineer Rashid has insulted cow, considered to be mother.
