Haryana Police arrests 2 for trying to breach Amit Shah's security cordon

Chandigarh: Two persons were arrested on Thursday for trying to break through the security cordon of BJP chief Amit Shah, who is on a three-day visit to Haryana, the police said.

Two persons, identified as Ashok and Rajinder of a village in Rohtak, allegedly tried to break the security cordon on the intervening night of 2 and 3 August at the Tilyar lake tourist complex in Rohtak, where the BJP leader is staying, the Rohtak Police said in a statement.

Both were in an inebriated condition. They tried to break through security and meet the BJP chief. However, the duo were arrested at the first tier of the multi-layer security cordon thrown around the place where the dignitary is putting up, Rohtak SP Pankaj Nain said in the evening.

The men were being questioned. A case has been registered against them under relevant provisions of the law at the Urban Estate police station. The car in which they travelled to the place has also been impounded, he said.

Nain said the police were fully alert and adequate security arrangements have been made in view of Shah's three- day stay at Rohtak.

"No one will be allowed to take the law into their own hands. Those who break the law will be dealt with accordingly," he said.

With an eye on the 2019 Lok Sabha polls, Shah is travelling across states to strategise and find ways to strengthen the party at the grass-root level.
