NAGPUR:  A Congress worker threw ink on former Maharashtra chief minister Ashok Chavan during a rally here. 

When Chavan stood up to address the gathering yesterday, a Congress worker threw black ink on his face.

Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) leader Nawab Malik condemned the incident and said this should not be the way of protest in a democracy. 

“This act cannot be supported in a democratic environment. Strict action should be taken against the guilty,” he said.
