"The incident of throwing ink on Rajya Sabha MP Sanjay Singh of Aam Aadmi Party, who went to the family of the victim in Hathras village, is highly condemnable. The government will not be able to suppress the voice of opposition leaders. Will provide justice to the daughter (victim)," the SP said in a tweet.
Police said that ink was thrown at Sanjay Singh during a press conference and the person responsible for it was immediately taken into custody. They said necessary legal action is being taken.
