A 46-year-old-man, Vimal Raj, from Kerala allegedly entered the Kerala House in New Delhi yesterday with a knife and a national flag when Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan was inside the building, police said.
A resident of Kerala's Karipuzha, Raj is "mentally unstable" and was admitted to the Ram Manohar Lohia Hospital's neurological department.
Raj wanted to meet the Chief Minister Vijayan, police said.
Raj was threatening to commit suicide
Deputy Commissioner of Police (Delhi) Madhur Verma said when security guards at the Kerala House noticed Raj entering with a knife and a national flag, they stopped him.
The guards initially heard his plea but when he kept on threatening to commit suicide, they handed him over to police.
During interrogation, Raj told police that he required some money and wanted to meet Vijayan.
