Delhi Police seek Rahul Gandhi's description: Congress alleges "political espionage"

New Delhi, March 14: The Congress on Saturday alleged political espionage behind Delhi Police making "unwarranted and weird enquiries" about its vice president Rahul Gandhi.

"This kind of snooping, surveillance and intrusion in political opponent's life may be Gujarat model but not Indian model," said party spokesman Abhishek Singhvi.

The Congress has also demanded an explanation from Prime Minister and Home Minister on the issue.

Singhvi said a Delhi Police Assistant Sub Inspector identified by him as Shamsher Singh had enquired about Rahul.

The policeman was stopped and accosted by the staff of Special Protection Group, who guard Rahul, at the residence of the Congress Vice President, Singhvi said.

According to some media reports, a Delhi police sub-inspector visited the office of Rahul Gandhi and enquired about his physical features- like colour of his eyes and his hair, leaving the Congress furious.

Meanwhile, the police have denied asking for details about Gandhi's appearance and called it a routine enquiry.

Police said such surveys are conducted at all protected persons' offices from time to time and no personal questions were asked.

The Congress, agitated over Delhi Police's 'intrusive' visit to the party office, has demanded a statement from the government on the issue.
