Three youngsters, apparently drunk, managed to drive up to an inner gate of PM Manmohan Singh’s 7 Race Course Road residence around 9 p.m. on Thursday. A cabinet meeting was on inside

This gate (No. 2) is where VVIPs park vehicles and go inside. Police said the area was a shoot-at-sight zone. But PMO said there was no security breach as people could come up to reception area. They are turned away if they don’t have an appointment

The car was noticed by mediapersons (waiting for the cabinet briefing) who raised an alarm. After the SPG informed the police, the car was intercepted at INA market

‘why can’t we meet pm?’
The youths — Yogita, Imran, Veena — were being interrogated. Yogita, an airhostess, said they were from Jaipur and didn’t know they wouldn’t be allowed inside. “We thought we could get an appointment with the PM at the gate itself,” she said
