New Delhi: A mentally unstable woman sneaked into a high-security area during the Republic Day rehearsal and allegedly shouted ‘Pakistan Zindabad’ on Sunday morning, police said. The woman has been identified as Sultana, a native of Nizamabad in Hyderabad, they added. The security personnel on the duty at the India Gate prevented the woman from entering Amar Jawan Jyoti. She also pushed away the soldiers who were on duty and created a ruckus around the monument, police said.

The woman was held by Delhi Police woman constables who later took her to Parliament Street police station, a senior police officer said. Investigations revealed that two days ago, the woman had left her native place to visit a relative’s house in Mumbai and she got confused on the way and arrived in New Delhi, he said. Sultana was taken to hospital for medical examination from where she was sent to a women shelter home, he added.

The officer said they contacted the local police in Hyderabad to inform her relatives regarding her and it was learnt that two days ago, a missing complaint was filed in Nizamabad after the woman had left for Mumbai. During medical examination, doctors informed police the woman is mentally unstable. Other security agencies also verified the details before she was sent to women shelter home, the officer added. Police said there was nothing suspicious about the woman. No case has been registered in this regard.
