Moscow: In an unusual incident, Prime Minister Narendra Modi was pulled back by a Russian official as he walked past the guard of honour accorded to him while the Indian national anthem was being played soon after his arrival here on Wednesday.

As the Prime Minister was moving when 'Jana Gana Mana' was being played at the guard of honour by a contingent of Russian military, a Russian official gently nudged him to move back. Modi started walking following a gesture by a Russian official when the military band was playing India's national anthem at the Vnukova II airport.

However, another official stopped Modi from walking following which the Prime Minister stepped back and stood in attention. As per convention, one should stand in attention when the national anthem is played.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi met Russian President Vladimir Putin during the PM's first bilateral visit to Russia. The two leaders are set to deliberate on various global issues and tackling the threat of terrorism as well.
