Srinagar: Former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah on Satutday "laughed off" Delhi Police for seeking "unwarranted and weird" enquiries about the Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi.
"There is a spate of robberies in Lutyens Delhi & the police reach Rahul Gandhi's office to find out what he looks like. You have to laugh," Omar wrote on micro-blogging site Twitter.com.
The former chief minister said the stand-up comedians would be "salivating" at what they could do with such a "script".
"Honestly the Delhi Police-RG office script must have stand up comics salivating at what they can do with it :-)," he said.
Omar, the working president of the opposition National Conference (NC) in Jammu and Kashmir, gave the details about his looks in a sarcastic tweet aimed at Delhi Police.
"Dear Delhi Police, just to save your chaps time & effort I'm 179 cms, medium build, fair complexion, grey eyes & greying hair. U R welcome," he wrote.
Congress on Saturday accused the Narendra Modi government of carrying out "political espionage" on Gandhi claiming his staff had caught a Delhi police official seeking "unwarranted and weird" enquiries about him.
Declaring that the issue of "snooping and surveillance" on Gandhi would be raised in Parliament, the party demanded a "comprehensive explanation from no less than the Home Minister and the Prime Minister," rejecting the police claim that the episode as merely a security issue.
Gandhi is on a sabbatical since the start of the budget session of Parliament late last month.
