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.

"During travelling the protectee used non-bullet resistant civil vehicle without a personal security officer," the statement said. "The protectee took a lift in scooty as a pillion rider," it added.

Despite the security constraints, the CRPF provided appropriate security cover, it said.

"Such security lapses are communicated to the protectee and advised for ensuring proper security arrangements," it said.

Gandhi was in Uttar Pradesh's capital city Lucknow on 28 December and alleged that threats were issued to her security personnel by local police and that she was warned to restrict her movements.
