New Deilhi: Prashant Bhushan's house in Sector 14, Nodia, has been hurled with ink on Monday by a group of 'unidentified miscreants', a day after the notable lawyer-activist sparked a polemical statement describing Lord Krishna as 'legendary eve-teaser' while weighing in on the Uttar Pradesh government's anti-Romeo squad.
"Romeo loved just one lady, while Krishna was a legendary Eve teaser. Would Adityanath have the guts to call his vigilantes AntiKrishna squads?," Bhushan tweets.
His comments came in light when the recent video footage which showcased innocent men and couple being subjected to harsh treatment instead of actually cracking down on those who stalk and molest women.

Insisting that he didn't intend to hurt religious sentiments," the activist said,"We have grown up with legends of young Krishna teasing Gopis. The logic of Romeo squad would criminalise this. Didn't intend to hurt sentiments."
