‘You can solve my problem right there…’
According to the reports, this man trying to forcibly enter Doval’s residence was talking deluded. He was saying that he has to meet Ajit Doval. Only he can solve his problem. After preliminary investigation, Delhi Police said that the accused seems to be mentally disturbed. He was driving a rented car.
Ajit Doval lives in 5 Janpath bungalow in Lutyens’ Zone, a very high security area of Delhi. Before him, former Prime Minister Inder Kumar Gujral lived in this bungalow. Congress President Sonia Gandhi and former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh’s bungalow are adjacent to Doval’s bungalow.
Who is Ajit Doval?
Born in Pauri Garhwal, Uttarakhand, Doval’s career started as an IPS officer. In dealing with enemies within the country as well as abroad, especially in Pakistan, Doval has left a distinct mark with his work. Doval was sent to Kashmir in the early 90s. For nearly a decade, he headed the Operations Wing of the Intelligence Bureau. Doval was also an intelligence spy in the North-East, Jammu and Kashmir and Punjab for 33 years.
Ajit Doval was made the National Security Advisor in the Narendra Modi government after retirement. He was the head planner of the surgical strike operation to eliminate militants who entered the Myanmar border after the attack on an army convoy in Manipur in 2015. In 2019, there was sudden violence in Delhi in protest against CAA-NRC. Ajit Doval continued to give directions to the officers. After a few days, Doval himself took to the streets of Delhi and took stock of the situation.
