India’s Congress party yesterday demanded a probe into alleged transportation of a "suspicious black trunk" on Prime Minister Narendra Modi's helicopter during his visit to Chitradurga in southern state of Karnataka for election meetings.
Congress spokesperson and senior leader Anand Sharma said that the Election Commission should inquire into the contents of the "trunk".
He said the Congress' Karnataka unit has already filed a complaint with the Election Commission in this regard.
The Prime Minister had addressed an election rally in Karnataka's Chitradurga on April 9.
"We saw there were three more choppers escorting the Prime Ninister's helicopter. After landing, a black trunk was taken out and whisked away in a private car which was not part of the Special Protection Group motorcade," he alleged.
Playing a video clip, Sharma said "What was there in the trunk. If there was no cash in it, let an inquiry be held."
