Security Breach at PM House: Is sitting idle Delhi Police insinuating something?

Lok Kalyan Marg Residence of the Prime Minister

The recent breach in the security of the Prime Minister’s residence is a serious issue which is being ignored by the Delhi Police.

The incident of breach in the security of the Prime Minister’s residence by the government managers of Gymkhana Club has put the New Delhi Police in the dock. It is alleged that the police are hiding the incident of flying the drone despite the ban in the very sensitive area of the national capital.

The allegation of flying a drone is also on none other than the Director appointed by the Central Government in the Gymkhana Club. If sources are to be believed, the Special Protection Group, which is responsible for the security of the Prime Minister, has also written a strict letter to the police in this regard. But for some reason, a special commissioner is not allowing the case to be registered.

This is what transpired 

In fact, during the Amrit-Mahotsav of Indian Independence this year, Ashish Verma, the then secretary of Gymkhana Club, had organized a Tiranga Yatra with its employees. During this, the club managers took out the Tiranga Yatra up to three idols without permission. The breach in the security arrangements related to the security of the Prime Minister’s residence caused a stir in the Delhi Police department. According to sources, when the local ACP reached the spot, the club managers threatened and threw him out of the club. Then the Deputy Commissioner of Police had to show strictness, however, due to unknown reasons, a case was registered against ‘selected’ people in Tughlaq Road police station of Delhi under minor sections in this case while getting rid of the responsibility.

Breach in the security of Prime Minister’s residence

It was alleged that the Gymkhana management flew the drone there despite the instructions. Since the Gymkhana wall is attached to the Prime Minister’s residence and there is already a ban on flying even balloons in the air in this area. Therefore, this news of a breach in the security of the Prime Minister’s residence immediately caused panic. Nevertheless. the Deputy Commissioner of Police did not take any concrete action. It is alleged that to hide the matter, he denied the incident of flying a drone without any investigation.

But a few days later, a video of the drone being flown over the Prime Minister’s residence surfaced. Despite this, the district police did not register a case over this occurrence to hide the negligence of the people concerned. Sources say that the SPG, which is responsible for the security of the Prime Minister in this case, has also written a letter to the Delhi Police expressing its strong displeasure over the incident. Departmental sources say that a senior official posted in the Ministry of Corporate Affairs has raised serious questions on the functioning of the present management by citing the incident of drone flying in the file related to the multi-crore scam in the club.

Who is being accused?

It is also alleged that to suppress the information about the incident, the club employees have also been threatened that anyone who spoke about the drone would be fired. What is more serious is that the allegation of flying the drone is being leveled against none other than Ashish Verma, a retired IRS officer from the Income Tax Department, who was deputed by the Central Government to run the club. Strangely, the chair of the chairman of the club is being handled by a retired IPS officer. In such a situation, this negligence of Gymkhana management, is being considered very serious. But despite such serious allegations, Verma is not ready to say anything about it.

Top police officers under questions

The special thing is that ACP Chanakyapuri Suma Madda has admitted that she has got the footage of flying the drone. She says that according to the local SHO, the connection of the case with Gymkhana Club is not being established. So the matter is being investigated now. But New Delhi’s Deputy Commissioner of Police Amrutha Guguloth is also refusing to get footage related to flying the drone. Whereas sources say that the DCP also has this footage. He reveals that no case has been registered in this case yet. According to Delhi Police sources, despite being a serious matter related to the security of the Prime Minister’s residence, a Special Commissioner of Police posted in Delhi Police Department is not allowing a case to be registered in this matter.
