New Delhi: The Congress party on Monday said that conducting a secret surveillance at a VIPs residence is unacceptable and added that the act was almost similar to espionage.

"If police is conducting a secret surveillance at a VIPs residence, it is unacceptable. We need an answer on this. It's almost similar to espionage," said senior Congress leader PC Chacko.

Meanwhile, party leader Ashwini Kumar said that the Congress would certainly raise the issue in the Parliament with all the strength at their command.

The Congress Party is likely to seek answers from the NDA Government in Parliament today over the visit of Delhi Police officials to the party office to seek details of Rahul Gandhi's physical appearance.

Delhi Police personnel visited Rahul Gandhi's residence last week and also sought details about his height and colour of eyes and hair.

A team, led by Additional Deputy Commissioner of Police Jatin Narwal, visited Gandhi's Tughlak Lane residence to enquire about the sequence of events.

The team also checked the pictures of the policemen who had visited Rahul's residence a couple of days ago and enquired about the colour of Congress leader's eyes and hairs.

The Delhi Police on Saturday said it was a routine security enquiry and that there was no malafide intention behind it.
