As the Congress accused the government of putting the lives of its leaders at risk after over a security breach at party leader Priyanka Gandhi Vadra’s residence, Union Home Minister Amit Shah Tuesday said it was “coincidence” that a Congress leader from Meerut arrived in an identical car used by Rahul Gandhi at the same time he was expected to visit. Three security officers have been suspended over the breach, Shah said.
“Priyanka Gandhi got information that Rahul Gandhi was coming to meet her in black SUV, but another black SUV came at the same time which had Meerut Congress leader Sharda Tyagi in it.
“The car and timing were same, such was the coincidence. That’s why the car with Sharda Tyagi went in without security check. Then also, we’ve ordered high-level probe & suspended 3 officers responsible for breach,” he informed Rajya Sabha during a debated on the Special Protection Group (Amendment) Bill, 2019
