Gujarat MLA Jignesh Mevani and former JNU students union leader Kanhaiya Kumar had ink thrown at them as people elsewhere burnt their effigies in Gwalior on Monday, police said.

The two were in Gwalior to address a seminar at the Chamber of Commerce Bhawan as part of their "Samvidhan Bachao" protest.

Mukesh Pal of the Hindu Sena threw ink at Kumar and Mevani, which left a stain on their shirts, when the two were about to address the seminar, said additional superintendent of police S.S. Tomar.
