Damoh: Police have registered a case against three BJP workers after they threw ink on the district education officer (DEO) of Damoh in Madhya Pradesh while accusing him of favouring a private school following a row over headscarf being part of its uniform, an official said on Wednesday.

The incident took place on Tuesday afternoon when DEO SK Mishra’s vehicle was moving out of the office campus, PTI reported.

A video of the incident is also viral on social media sites.

BJP’s Damoh district vice president Amit Bajaj had claimed responsibility for the ink attack.

The incident was condemned by Madhya Pradesh BJP unit president VD Sharma.

The state education department last week suspended the recognition of Ganga Jamuna Higher Secondary School following a controversy over a poster showing girls, including Hindu students, wearing headscarves that looked like hijab as part of the uniform.
