BHUBANESWAR: A woman attempted to stop the convoy of Chief Minister Mohan Charan Majhi at Rasulgarh square here on Tuesday.

The police had stopped vehicular movement between Rasulgarh and Vani Vihar for sometime to give passage to the chief minister’s carcade which was returning from VSS Nagar after attending a programme.

Allegedly peeved over getting stuck in the traffic due to the blockade for CM’s movement, the woman went past the security cordon and walked to the middle of the road at Rasulgarh square causing a flutter. She allegedly stopped the route clearance vehicle of police leading the chief minister’s motorcade and sought to know from police the reason behind the traffic blockade.

The drama continued for a while as no woman cop was present at the scene. Soon a lady police personnel brought the woman to the side of the road allowing Majhi’s carcade to pass smoothly.

Police said only the route clearance vehicle stopped for a while. The chief minister’s convoy passed smoothly without any disturbance, they said.

Bhubaneswar DCP Prateek Singh said police are investigating the matter but denied it to be a security breach.

The woman, meanwhile, was released without any charges being pressed till reports last came in. The issue raised questions on traffic arrangements for the CM’s movement. However, a probe has been launched into the incident.
