Six members of the Shiv Sena party arrested

Police in Mumbai, India said that they arrested six members of a Hindu right-wing group for pouring black ink over the head of Sudheendra Kulkarni.

 

Kulkarni was organizing a book launch by former Pakistani foreign minister Khurshid Mahmud Kasuri when the Shiv Sena party drenched Kulkarni with ink on Monday.

 

The Shiv Sena party claimed the ink was a means of “peaceful protest” against Pakistan.

 

Police said that they arrested six men, all Shiv Sainiks, and that they have been released on bail.

 

Last week the Shiv Sena forced a concert by Pakistani singer Ghulam Ali to be cancelled.
