The Ministry of Home Affairs issued orders on Wednesday to provide Z-plus security to BJP leader Amit Shah following high threat perception. The decision was taken after a high-level committee, including the Intelligence Bureau, carried out a fresh threat assessment recently.
Home Minister Rajnath Singh who reviewed VIP security Wednesday cleared the security for Shah after going through the committee’s report. The ministry has asked the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) to provide all-round security cover in any part of the country to Shah. Shah, a close associate of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, will be guarded by the CRPF commandos round-the-clock. Besides, armed guards will also be posted at his residence, official sources said.
The BJP leader, who was instrumental in party’s landslide victory in UP in the recent Lok Sabha elections, has been under the security of the Gujarat Police so far.
