Bhopal (Madhya Pradesh): A team of the Madhya Pradesh police reached the Congress's state headquarter, Indira Gandhi Bhavan, at Shivaji Nagar here on Saturday.

They reached without any prior intimation at 1.30 p.m., just before a delegation of the party led by Vice President MPCC Media Department, Sangeeta Sharma, was set to leave the office to hand over a Tricolour to Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) Chief Mohan Bhagwat, a source from the party told IANS.

The RSS chief, who is currently on a three-day visit to Bhopal, will attend the concluding meet of Vishwa Sangh Siksha Varg. The programme is to infuse Indian values among Hindus living abroad and its concluding ceremony will be held on August 7.

The Bhopal police is yet to make any statement on this issue.
