New Delhi: Strictly following the rule
book, Home Minister P Chidambaram today walked about 500
meters to reach a venue of Commonwealth Games after Delhi
Police disallowed his personal security officer and car driver
to accompany him for not carrying accreditation cards.
The Minister, who toured the CWG venues this morning,
was asked to stop at Siri Fort sports complex by the Delhi
Police for security check.
Although Chidambaram had an accreditation card and his
car carried the entry sticker, the accompanying security
officer and the car driver did not have the documents.
The officials politely told the Home Minister that he
and his car can go inside the venue but the security officer
and the driver would not be permitted.
Chidambaram abided by the Delhi Police officials`
request and got out of his car and walked nearly 500 meters to
enter the venue as his staff and car remained at the parking
