In a major breach of security, a man slipped through the security cordon and into the way that Prime Minister Narendra Modi was taking on Saturday night after attending an event in Mysuru.
Although the incident caused some tension, Karnataka police chief Om Prakash later clarified that the man did not have an intention to harm the Prime Minister. The incident occurred when Modi was leaving Maharaja College after attending the centenary celebrations of the late Shivaranjdra Swami of Suttur Mutt.
The incident has occurred on a day when suspected terrorists attacked an Ari Force station in Pathankot near the border with Pakistan.
A video clipping taken by a bystander shows a number of people standing behind the police cordon near VV Junction, possibly hoping to catch a glimpse of the Prime Minister. A few cars of the cordon are seen passing by before a man is seen running into the path of the convoy. After that, several men, presumably security personnel, were seen running towards the man.
Police are now questioning the man, who was reportedly carrying a bag, and information on its contents is being withheld.
