Security breach at Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi's residence

New Delhi/IBNS: A security breach allegedly took place at the residence of Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi Vadra in New Delhi last month, media reports said.

A car drove into the house of Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi Vadra in central Delhi's high-security Lodhi Estate, leading to serious concerns over the security breach, sources told NDTV.

Priyanka Gandhi's office has confirmed to NDTV that the security breach took place on November 25.

Five people including a girl came out of the car after it drove in right up to the porch near the garden at Priyanka Gandhi's house, sources told the news channel.

They walked straight to her garden and asked for a photo to be taken with the Congress leader, sources said, adding the family said they came all the way from a town in Uttar Pradesh to click a photo with her.

"Yes it (security breach) did happen, but no hell broke loose at all. She (Priyanka Gandhi) chatted to them nicely, took pictures and they went back. But after that others in the office took it up with the CRPF," a senior official from Priyanka Gandhi's office told NDTV.

The incident occurred days after UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi and her two children-Congress leaders Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka Gandhi Vadra- lost their Special Protection Group (SPG) security cover.

They now get Z-plus security cover.

The SPG cover is considered as the highest tier of security in the country.
