Kejriwal was in Bikaner, 350 km from Jaipur, to attend a condolence meeting at the home of a local leader of his Aam Aadmi Party.

Questioning of both the persons is going on, said the police officer, noting that the political affiliations of these men who are students are not known as of now.

Sources said that Kejriwal was attacked apparently by students affiliated with RSS's student wing Akhil Bhartiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) for his remarks on Indian Army's surgical strike.

Kejriwal in his tweet on ink attack said, " Hmmm... God bless those who threw ink at me. I wish them well."
