Uttar Pradesh police were thrown into a tizzy on Thursday following a wireless message about one of the vehicles in the chief minister’s cavalcade being stolen during a visit in Jhansi.
Vehicles in chief minister Yogi Adityanath’s fleet were parked at a nearby compound during his meeting with district officials are Vikas Bhawan.
A massive hunt was launched soon after a message was received on the wireless about “theft” of one of the vehicles, SP (City) Dinesh Singh said. Traffic Police informed that since the vehicle was parked at the wrong place it was shifted to the allotted parking area, the SP said, adding the wireless message was given on the information of the vehicle driver.
During his visit, Adityanath also undertook a surprise inspection of the district hospital where he enquired about treatment and other facilities from the patients.
Later, he inspected the Krishi Mandi at the Kanpur Road and a primary school in Takori village in Badagaon development block and interacted with students.
Enquiring about the midday meal given to the children in the school, he also inspected the school kitchen.
This was Adityanath’s first visit to Jhansi in parched Bundelkhand region of the state after assuming office almost a month ago.
