Madhura Nagendra, a Bangalore student and opening ceremony cast member, puzzled Indian authorities when she paraded through the Olympic Stadium dressed in red and blue, in complete contrast to the Indian contingent's female members who were wearing yellow saris and blue blazers. (SOUNDBITE) (English) OLYMPIC GATECRASHER, MADHURA NAGENDRA, SAYING: "Considering the fact that it is a huge event they had thousands of people across the globe working towards it, in an error of judgment, I resulted in walking with the athletes in the eventuality I have hurt the sentiments of my people, my brothers and sisters for which I extend my apologies." Nagendra said her actions did not breach ceremony security.
