Thiruvananthapuram: In a security lapse, the car in which Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi was travelling in ran short of fuel at Mankombu near Alappuzha on Monday.
Gandhi was travelling with Kerala Home Minister Ramesh Chennithala in his official car.
The driver of the car saw the fuel level running low while passing through Mankumbu on Changabassery-Alappuzha road.
The vehicle then stopped at the next petrol pump for refuelling.
Gandhi was returning to the airport after participating in the `Kerala Yatra` organized by the state unit of the Youth Congress.
Asked about the incident, a top police official denied the suggestion that it involved security lapse.
Gandhi had walked with the party workers in the yatra for a while at Noornad in Alappuzha district.
