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.
