Amit Shah was in Agartala yesterday to meet former Tripura royal Pradyot Manikya Debburma and discuss an alliance between the BJP and the Tipra Motha. He also held a meeting with recently sworn-in Tripura Chief Minister Manik Saha. But an unexpected addition to his itinerary in the northeastern state was an unauthorised car following his convoy.
The security breach, which was caught on camera, shows a White Tata Tigor following the Union Home Minister's convoy soon after he leaves the State Guest House in Agartala.
Cops tried to stop the car as Amit Shah's convoy is passing by. But the Tigor evaded the security detail and sped past the convoy.
The car entered the scene just after the tail car of Amit Shah's convoy. Some other VIP cars were also scheduled to follow.
Police said they are investigating the matter.
Last year, Mumbai police arrested a 32-year-old man for impersonating the Personal Assistant of an Andhra Pradesh MP who was going to meet Amit Shah at an event.
The man was seen outside the residences of Maharashtra Chief Minister Eknath Shinde and his deputy Devendra Fadnavis impersonating himself as a member of the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) as he also carried its ribbon tag, news agency ANI reported.
