Seven persons allegedly trespassed into Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi Vadra’s residence in New Delhi’s Lodhi Estate area on November 25. 

The seven occupants of a black SUV— four women and three men, wanted to click photographs with Ms. Vadra, a senior police officer said.

They managed to cross the main gate of the bungalow but were stopped after a few metres by Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) personnel.

The officer said the group was questioned and released subsequently. No police complaint was made.

Union Minister for State for Home G Kishan Reddy said he was not aware about the incident and would seek a report from the relevant officials.
