The car reportedly tried to enter from the same gate from where terrorists had launched a ghastly attack on Parliament in 2001. Sources said the car stopped just short of the spikes, which got activated and broke the bumper of the car.
According to news agency ANI, the car belongs to Congress MP from Manipur Dr Thokchom Meinya. He was not in the car at the time of the incident.
As soon as the car hit the spikes, security personnel took positions as per the standard operating procedure put in place following the 2001 Parliament attack.
A similar incident involving a taxi had set alarm bells ringing in December last year.
