There was a security breach at Congress General Secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra’s Lodhi Estate home last week. According to the sources, some unknown persons barged in in Priyanka Gandhi’s residence and asked for selfies, adding that her office has taken up the matter with the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) which is responsible for her security. The security breach at Priyanka Gandhi’s house happened on November 26.

The Centre in November had replaced the Special Protection Group (SPG) cover of the Gandhi family with Z-plus security provided by the CRPF. Under the Z-plus security, the Gandhis are now being protected by the CRPF commandos in close proximity besides guards at their homes and where ever they travel in the country.

Sources have told India Today TV that a vehicle barged into the house of Priyanka Gandhi at around 2 pm on November 26. Three men, three women and a child were inside the vehicle.

Priyanka Gandhi was in a meeting when the incident happened. They told the Congress leader that they were her fans and wanted to meet her.

Priyanka Gandhi’s Office has written to the CRPF in view of the security breach at the Delhi residence of the Congress leader. The CRPF, in its reply, has said the responsibility of the access to the residence is that of the Delhi Police.

The Delhi Police has, however, said the gates to the unknown persons were opened only after they were given a green signal.

Reacting to the security breach at Priyanka Gandhi’s house in Delhi, MoS Home Affairs G Kishan Reddy said he does not have the details of the incident. “I don’t know the details yet. I am coming from Lok Sabha. I will go and discuss the matter with my officers,” G Kishan Reddy was quoted as saying by news agency ANI.
