Major Security Breach In Joe Biden’s Convoy: There was a major lapse in the security of US President Joe Biden during the G20 Summit on Saturday morning. The driver of a car belonging to his convoy was found seating a passenger. The security personnel caught him when he arrived with the passenger at Hotel Taj where the UAE Crown Prince was staying. However, the driver was released after questioning and the car was separated from Biden’s convoy.
What Actually Happened
Subsequent investigations revealed that the breach happened because the driver had chosen to accept another customer’s request before heading to President Biden’s accommodation, ITC Maurya, where President Biden was residing during the G20 Summit. Having some spare time, he agreed to transport another passenger to the Taj Hotel.
A businessman, who happened to be the passenger, was also in the car when security agencies stopped them at the hotel.
