NEW DELHI: In a major security breach, a 20-year-old woman went on a rampage, pushed over police barricades and broke a flowerpot just before PM Narendra Modi’s convoy crossed South Block in the national capital on Wednesday.
The woman, identified as Neena Rawal, a resident of Sahibabad in Uttar Pradesh, threw the flower pot and tried to come into the way of the PM’s cavalcade. She was immediately detained and taken to the Parliament Street Police station. The incident took place close to 2.10 pm.
“The woman was part of the crowd which was asked to clear the road and assemble at a pavement near Vijay Chowk as the PM’s convoy was to pass through the area. She became furious when the police told her to move further aside,” Deputy Commissioner of Police Jatin Narwal said.
The woman entered into an altercation with security personnel and pushed over three barricades. By the time the police could stop her, she ran towards Raisina Hill where she threw a flower pot. She told the police some hooligans had torn her mark-sheet and harassed her at her native place. She lodged a complaint but the police allegedly failed to take action. She claimed she wanted to meet the PM.
“But when she was asked whether she knew whose convoy was going to pass by, she said she had no idea,” an officer said.
