Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s security may have been breached in Gujarat, state police sources have told CNN-News18.
The report comes after an unauthorised drone was allegedly shot down by National Security Guard (NSG) personnel in the poll-bound state. The object was spotted near the PM’s rally venue in Bavla.
A multi-agency probe has been launched into the matter, the sources said.

The sources said that the incident occurred at around 4.30 pm and one person had been taken into custody.
