Man living behind Rashtrapati Bhawan since 40 years

Rashtrapati Bhawan

New Delhi: In a bizarre incident that has shaken up security agencies in the Rashtrapati Bhawan on Saturday night, police patrol spotted a man climbing over the stone wall on the periphery of the Bodyguard Lines, a part of the President’s Estate.

At first the police feared about terror attacks in the capital and suddenly launched a search operation in the woods behind the President’s residence and found a white bearded man named Gazi Norool Hassan.

During the interrogation of the 68-year-old man some surprising things came up that he had been living in a grimy alcove for almost 40 years. He had dug into the several meters thick wall of a Tughlaq-era monument on the Rashtrapati Bhawan.

He lived there with his 22-year-old son, Mohammad Noor, and held a voter’s identity card, passport and a valid electricity connection for the past 20 years. The address on these documents was the Mazar.

He was an Urdu scribe and a religious teacher, originally from Baraich in UP, who shifted to the President’s Estate on being hired as a religious teacher by former President Fakhruddin Ali Ahmed. He also taught Urdu to some families on the former President’s urging.
