Mr Advani had to wait for a few minutes at the police station. Police said there was no security lapse and the police station was designated as a 'safe house' on the route taken by the VVIP.
Later, Mr Advani proceeded to Kumarakom in Kottayam district. He was on a private visit, party sources said.
However, BJP state president Kummanom Rajasekharan alleged security lapse and said police should have taken necessary steps to clear the road as Mr Advani belonged to a high-security category.
