No breach in security: CRPF denies Priyanka Gandhi’s claim


New Delhi, Dec 30: There was no breach in Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi Vadra''s security during her recent trip to Lucknow, the CRPF said on Monday, blaming her for "violations" for travelling as a pillion rider on a scooter.

The force, which provides her armed commandos under the ''Z+'' category of security cover to her, said the Congress leader undertook "unscheduled" movement without intimation. Therefore, an advanced security liaison (ASL) could not be conducted, it said in a statement.
