A 43-year-old man who was detained by the Delhi Police for allegedly attempting to enter the residence of India's National Security Advisor, Ajit Doval, is suffering from hallucinations and is disoriented.

He told the police that he was wearing a "chip" and was being "controlled by someone externally".

"He suffers from hallucinations and is mentally disturbed and disoriented. He has been saying different things throughout the interrogation. His thoughts don’t appear to be aligned, "a senior police officer said. 

The incident occurred at 7:30 a.m. on Wednesday morning in front of Doval's house on Tughlaq Road.

According to sources, the 43-year-old attempted to enter the NSA's mansion but was stopped at the entrance by security officers.
