82nd unidentified member of the Indian Contingent in London

An unknown woman supposedly pushed along the Indian marching contingent in the London 2012 opening ceremony by the organizing committee seemed to be hogging all the limelight in the march past at the Olympic stadium

It raised some serious questions on whether the women in red and blue gate crashed into the party or was this a security breach; only the organizers can tell.

Fact is this mystery woman was like a sore thumb amidst the sea of Golden and Navy blue attire that Indian team adorned.
