NEW DELHI: Miffed over a group of people staging protests outside his home, Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Tuesday conveyed his displeasure at Delhi Police's "laxity" in stopping them.

Singh summoned Delhi Police Commissioner B S Bassi after Monday's incident when the group came to his residence in Ashoka Road in central Delhi to protest the rape of a young girl on Friday night.

"The Home Minister expressed his displeasure and told Bassi to ensure that no such incident occures in future," sources said.

The Delhi Police are understood to be conducting an internal inquiry to fix the responsibility for the alleged security breach.

In a similar security breach, a large number of protesters demanding reservation for the Jat community had forced their way into the residence of the then Home Minister Sushilkumar Shinde on April 11, 2013.

Thirteen policemen were suspended and 142 protesters arrested and they were charged with rioting, trespass and unlawful assembly besides obstructing and assaulting public servants on duty for that incident.

After Monday's incident, traffic on the busy Ashoka Road has been diverted temporarily as a precautionary measure.
