Moscow, Dec 23: In an unusual incident, Prime Minister Narendra Modi was pulled back by a Russian official as he walked past the guard of honour accorded to him while the Indian national anthem was being played soon after his arrival here today.

As the Prime Minister was moving when 'Jana Gana Mana' was being played at the guard of honour by a contingent of Russian military, a Russian official gently nudged him to move back.

However, another official stopped Modi from walking following which the Prime Minister stepped back and stood in attention. As per convention, one should stand in attention when the national anthem is played.

The Prime Minister is here on a two-day visit to hold annual summit talks with Russian President Vladimir Putin.
