The Karnataka police have apprehended two students in Bengaluru on the charges of breaching the security parameter that was installed over the visit of Union Home Minister Amit Shah. The incident took place on Sunday late night when Amit Shah was en route to the airport to take flight to New Delhi.
Amit Shah had visited Bengaluru to participate in the core committee meeting at the party headquarters. It has been reported that when the Union Home Minister's convoy was driving through the Safina Plaza, the accused students had breached the security parameter and reportedly travelled along with the convoy. The students were on a bike and they kept riding for 300 meters even as police men tried to stop them.
The police eventually stopped the students at the Manipal Centre and the officials have taken one of them under custody. While the other student fled from the spot, he was later arrested and taken into custody. According to ANI, the police said that the students have entered one way and got panicked after seeing the policemen.
Though the preliminary reports have shown that the students aren't history-sheeters, the police have launched a probe into the incident. The Bharatinagar police have registered a case in this regard against students under IPC Sections 353 for obstructing the duty of a government official and 279 for rash and negligent driving.
It must be noted that an incident of security breach was also reported when Prime Minister Narendra Modi rolled out a road show on Saturday in Davanagere district of Karnataka. The breach occurred when Modi was brought in an open vehicle from the helipad.
