Aurangabad, July 31: While controversial Bangladesh-born author Taslima sreen on Monday wondered how the itinerary of her visit to the city was leaked, official sources said police were probing the security breach.
sreen, now a Swedish citizen, was virtually packed off from the airport here around 8 p.m. on Saturday after huge protests outside as well as near the Taj Hotel where she planned to stay during her three-day sojourn. All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) legislator Imtiyaz Jaleel led one of the protests. The party activists waving placards and banners shouted slogans, demanding that she goes back, even as police rushed to the protest spots.
“People didn’t want her to enter Aurangabad. I realised that if she came, there will be violence. So, she was sent back,” Jaleel tweeted on Sunday. An obviously peeved sreen made her displeasure known on Monday. “Nobody, but the police in Aurangabad, was informed about my itinerary and hotel booking. I wonder how fatics got to know everything?” “I had a dream to visit Ellora and Ajanta Caves. Can’t believe it was not possible in the largest democracy in the world,” she tweeted.
As a controversy erupted, top police officials declined to speak despite several attempts by IANS. Nevertheless, official sources confirmed that police are probing how the travel plan of an intertiol celebrity were leaked, giving rise to a potential law and order issue. (IANS)
