NCP leader Sharad Pawar found himself stuck inside a room for some 30 minutes on Wednesday.
Pawar had called a press conference in Maharashtra's Satara district.
There were some 50 to 60 journalists attending.
After Pawar had finished speaking, he tried to leave and found the door would not open.
For half an hour, Pawar and the journalists tried to get the door open — but to no avail.
Finally, when all else had failed, the door's lock had to be broken.
