According to Zee Newsthe Allahabad SP had failed to recognise him and let him enter the premises in his car. Bajpayee wanted to enter the venue with his car, but was asked to park it at the entrance as per protocol.

Speaking to Aaj Takthe MLA played down the incident and said: "I just told the police officer that those officials who don't show respect towards senior ministers will be dealth with severely."

Allahabad SSP Nitin Tiwary said a probe will be launched in that direction, reported ABP Live.
