New Delhi, March 5: A lawyer who threw ink at Sahara chief Subrata Roy Tuesday outside the Supreme Court premises here was sent to Tihar jail Wednesday.
Special Executive Magistrate Rai Singh Khatri sent Manoj Sharma – who had earlier attacked Congress MP and Commonwealth Games Organising Committee chairman Suresh Kalmadi with a slipper – to judicial custody till March 11 after police did not seek his custody.
Sharma, 44, was granted bail by the magistrate but he failed to get any surety on his behalf.
Police informed the magistrate that Sharma is facing trial in many other cases and is allegedly mentally unsound.
Sharma, who claims to be an advocate from Gwalior, threw ink at Roy Tuesday as he got out of a car and was heading for the court amid security personnel and a large number of media persons.
He has been booked under various sections of the Indian Penal Code.
