The orders came from the court headed by Justice Rakesh Kumar Jain during the resumed hearing of a petition moved by Surjewala seeking CISF security, stating threat from Kaithal gangster Surender Geong, who had jumped parole earlier this year.
Haryana government had withdrawn Inspector Amrik Singh Chahal, who originally belonged to CISF cadre, from his security detail on June 27.
The central government’s counsel informed the court that the Union Ministry of Home Affairs reconsidered Surjewala’s case and found there was no requirement of CISF security for him. It was submitted that as per his threat assessment, he has already been provided ‘Y’ category security having 11 cops by Haryana government. But Surjewala’s counsel informed that there are a number of other similarly placed persons with CISF security cover. The case has now been adjourned for November 7.
