New Delhi, Sep 29: Strictly following the rule book, Home Minister P Chidambaram today walked about 500 meters to reach a venue of Commonwealth Games after Delhi Police disallowed his personal security officer and car driver to accompany him for not carrying accreditation cards.

The Minister, who toured the CWG venues this morning, was asked to stop at Siri Fort sports complex by the Delhi Police for security check.

 Although Chidambaram had an accreditation card and his car carried the entry sticker, the accompanying security officer and the car driver did not have the documents.

The officials politely told the Home Minister that he and his car can go inside the venue but the security officer and the driver would not be permitted.

Chidambaram abided by the Delhi Police officials' request and got out of his car and walked nearly 500 meters to enter the venue as his staff and car remained at the parking area. PTI
