VIP nuisance

I was early to work this morning, for a change.  I had just entered the Airport Road-100 Ft Road Flyover when I saw a couple of cops stopping the traffic on the road.  I was one of the last vehicle to go over the flyover.  Moving ahead on to the Inner Ring Road connecting Indira Nagar to Koramangala, I saw cops lined up on the side of the road.   Vehicles were moving towards Koramangala, but they were few in number.  I suspect vehicles had been stopped on Airport Road as well.

The road was practically empty by the time I reached Ejipura signal, the start of Koramangala.   I saw that the opposite as well as the perpendicular roads in the junction had vehicles piled up.

At the signal, a cop indicated me to pull over and I did.  As if this was not enough, another cop (possibly a senior one) took the keys out of my vehicle and put it in his pocket. 

The VIP convey passed in a few seconds.  I did some googling but could not figure out who it was.

After a minute the flow of traffic resumed…
