The man was seen holding a banner that read, "AP need special status (sic)".

The man has been sitting there for one-and-a-half hours, Deputy Commissioner of Police (New Delhi) Madhur Verma said, adding that efforts were being made to bring him down.

A fire tender has also been rushed to the spot.
