The incident had created a commotion even as it revealed chinks in the politician's security.
Security personnel accompanying the chief minister grappled with Sawant as he shouted slogans and then handed him over to the local police.
Most of the ink fell on the security personnel but some landed on Khattar's clothes, face and hair.
The incident took place ahead of a roadshow by Khattar here last evening, part of a series of interactions with the public.
