A recent breach in Union Home Minister Amit Shah's Mumbai visit has led to the arrest of a certain Hemant Pawar, who is believed to be the personal secretary of an Andhra Pradesh MP. The accused hail from Dhule in Maharashtra.

The man posed to be an officer from the Home Ministry and was reportedly hovering around Shah during his visit. He was wearing an I-card of the Home Ministry. 

He was allegedly looking over the security arrangement for Shah and was present at two events which Shah attended. He was also seen outside the homes of Maharashtra Chief Minister Eknath Shinde and Deputy Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis. 

When a fellow home ministry official grew suspicious of him, he informed the Mumbai Police. On questioning, Pawar's true identity was revealed and he has been sent to police custody for five days. 
The police also learnt that his name was not on the list of the Home Minister's security team.

Shah was on a  two-day visit to Mumbai for the first time after Eknath Shinde became Maharashtra Chief Minister on July 30 following a split in the Shiv Sena.
