The man is reportedly from Koppal district and is being questioned by the police.

Davanagere Superintendent of Police CB Rishyanth ruled out any security breach. “Nothing like that (security breach) happened. He was not even near the Prime Minister. He was caught well before that," Rishyanth said.

“There was no breach in security as such of Hon'ble PM at Davanagere today. It was an unsuccessful attempt. He was caught immediately by myself and SPG at a safe distance. Appropriate action is being taken in this regard,” Kumar tweeted.

A similar incident that took place in Hubballi district in January when a boy jumped on the road suddenly and managed to get within an arm's length of Modi. He was intercepted at the last minute and whisked away by the SPG.

The boy was carrying a garland and was apparently trying to felicitate the prime minister who was riding on the running board of an SUV and waving to cheering crowds.
