A team, led by Additional Deputy Commissioner of Police (New Delhi) Jatin Narwal, visited Gandhi's Tughlak Lane residence to enquire about the incident and the sequence of events.

The team also checked the pictures of the policemen who had visited Rahul Gandhi's residence a couple of days ago and enquired about the colour of the colour of Congress leader's eyes and hairs.

The police team will give a report in this regard to Delhi Police Commissioner B S Bassi.

Congress spokesperson Abhishek Singhvi told reporters here that a Delhi Police Assistant Sub Inspector identified by him as Shamsher Singh had enquired about the colours of Rahul's hairs, eyes, age, height, the shoes he uses and his father's name and the places he visits.

Singhvi said the Delhi Policeman ASI was "found snooping" and making "unnecessary and weird" enquiries.

The policeman was stopped and accosted by the staff of Special Protection Group, who guard Rahul, at the residence of the Congress Vice President, Singhvi said.

The incident gave ammo to Singhvi to launch a sharp attack on the government saying it is a case of "political espionage and snooping" on rivals.

In a veiled reference to the snooping of a young woman in Gujarat during the tenure of Narendra Modi as chief minister, Singhvi, without naming Modi, said "espionage and surveillance" of political rivals may be a Gujarat model but not Indian model.

"The track record shows this kind of espionage was perfected in Gujarat for political opponents," he said.
