A mentally unstable woman allegedly raised anti-Indian slogans on Sunday after she sneaked into a high-security area during the Republic Day rehearsal, police said, adding the woman was identified as Sultana, a native of Nizamabad in Hyderabad. According to the police, she pushed away the soldiers who were on duty and created a ruckus as the security personnel on duty at the India Gate prevented the woman from entering Amar Jawan Jyoti.
The woman was held by Delhi Police woman constables who later took her to Parliament Street police station, a senior police officer said.
As per the information revealed through investigations, 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 local police in Hyderabad was contacted to inform her relatives about her, the officer said.
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.
There was nothing suspicious about the woman, police said.
No case has been registered in this regard.
