New Delhi: In a major security lapse, a 20-year-old woman Monday almost broke through the security ring for Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s convoy near South Block just seconds before the cavalcade passed, sending the security agencies into a tizzy.
The woman, identified as Neena Rawal, allegedly “threw” a flowerpot on the heavily-guarded Rajpath when the security personnel stopped her from crossing the barricades.
Neena, a resident of Sahibabad, Uttar Pradesh, was detained and taken to the Parliament Street police station, where the Delhi police and IB officials jointly interrogated her.
She was then taken for a medical checkup at Ram Manohar Lohia Hospital.
The police said the incident took place at around 2.12 pm, seconds before the PM’s convoy left South Block....
