Mumbai: Amit Shah’s security breached, accused held

Amit Shah

Mumbai Police on Thursday arrested a man for allegedly impersonating the Personal Assistant (PA) of an MP from Andhra Pradesh.

During Shah’s visit to Mumbai, the security of Home Minister Amit Shah was breached.

Meanwhile, the accused presented himself as a member of the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) and was also seen outside the residences of Maharashtra Chief Minister Eknath Shinde and his deputy Devendra Fadnavis.

In both the places where the Union Home Minister Amit Shah’s events were held the accused was seen.

During Amit Shah’s first visit a security breach for Home Minister in Maharashtra was witnessed and later the police verified that the impersonator’s name was not mentioned in Shah’s list of security.

However, after Eknath Shinde became Maharashtra Chief Minister Shah visited Mumbai on Monday for the first time.
