NEW DELHI: A couple in their 30s stripped in front of the main gate of Rashtrapati Bhavan (presidential palace) here on Monday after they were denied permission to meet President Pranab Mukherjee.
The couple , who were identified as Prabhat and Anuradha, showed up at the main gate and told security personnel that they wanted to meet the Indian President.
When they were not allowed in, they entered into arguments with the security staff and then took off their clothes.
According to police, the naked man ran down Raisina Hill. He was chased and arrested.
The couple were taken to the Parliament police station. But because of their abnormal behaviour they were shifted to Ram Manohar Lohia Hospital for a medical check-up.
Later, a sub-divisional magistrate ordered them to be admitted to the Institute of Human Behaviour and Allied Sciences in East Delhi.
Police are checking their background.
