Trinamool Congress MP Mahua Moitra on Saturday shot off a letter to the Delhi police chief requesting to withdraw three security personnel, armed with “assault rifles”, positioned outside her home in Delhi. “It appears to me that I am under some sort of surveillance,” said Ms Moitra who also tweeted several photos of the security officials.
Ms Moitra said that she was informed that the officers were deputed from Barakhamba Road police station for her protection. In her letter to Delhi Police Commissioner S N Shrivastava, she pointed out that she had never asked for any protection “being an ordinary citizen of this country”.
3 BSF men w/ assault rifles outside my home. Say they are from Barakhamba Road police station for my “protection”. Still outside my home.
Am a free citizen of India – people will protect me.
