A high alert was sounded inside Parliament premises after the car of MP rammed into a security barricade on Tuesday morning. 

According to News agency ANI, the vehicle belongs to Congress Lok Sabha MP from Manipur, Thokchom Meinya. It is not clear whether Meinya was inside the vehicle at the time of the incident. The incident took place when the car got stuck on the security spikes and set off the security siren. 

The security personnel immediately took positions to thwart any hostile challenge which has been the standard operating procedure since the 2001 Parliament attack. 

However, no one was injured in the incident, the car suffered some damage. Parliament security personnel are investigating the cause of the incident. 

Standard response procedures and enhanced security systems with better-trained manpower carrying sophisticated weapons, new detector gadgets, sniffer dogs and armoured vehicles were also brought in. 

Earlier on December 13, 2001, the parliament attack took place when five men of a suicide squad drove into the 6-acre Parliament complex. The attackers were armed with AK-47s with multiple magazines, grenades and other explosives.
