The fact that three men opened fire at an office in Bhandup just hours before BJP leader LK Advani was to pass through the suburb has raised several eyebrows in the police establishment.

When asked if the shootout in broad daylight amounted to a security breach, additional commissioner of police (east region) Qaiser Khalid said,”LK Advani was passing through another route, and not through the area where the incident took place.”

Normally, an area visited by a dignitary is sanitised beforehand and a security cordon is put in place to ensure that there is no breach of security.
