ANI General News
Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi Vadra's office has written to Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF)VIP security in-charge alleging that a UP police official accompanied by dozen police personnel on Saturday entered the premises of Priyanka Gandhi Vadra in Lucknow without permission, and had a verbal confrontation with her security personnel, issued threats to them and warned of restricting her movements.
"This morning at 8:45 am CO of Hazratganj Abhay Mishra along with at least a dozen police personnel, entered the premises at which the protectee, Priyanka Gandhi Vadra is staying, without prior permission. He then began a heated verbal confrontation with the CRPF personnel in charge of the protectee's security a mere five meters away from the protectee's room. He shouted at them and demanded information about the protectee's schedule which has already been provided to the authorities yesterday. He then accused the CRPF personnel of withholding information since they had readied their fleet as is their standard protocol every morning," read the letter to Inspector-General (IG) (Int.) CRPF, New Delhi
The letter says that the official further threatened the CRPF personnel that he "will not provide any security cover" to the protectee and will not "allow" the protectee "to take even two steps out of the premises".
"This behaviour is unprofessional, unlawful and incorrect. There is no scheduled program of the protectee today that is not in the knowledge of the U.P police authorities. The CRPF regularly informs the U.P Police of all scheduled movements of the protectee that are in their knowledge. The C/O has no jurisdiction or authority to enter the private premises of the protectee and issue threats to her security personnel or to threaten to restrict her movements in any manner," read the letter.
