The Ministry of Home Affairs is planning to engage central police force personnel to provide security to RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat who faces threat from terror outfits, a senior official said. Bhagwat already enjoys Z-plus security by the Maharashtra Police and the State Reserve Police. The MHA is keen to provide a mobile security cover to Bhagwat and has sought a report from the CISF.
“While he is in Maharashtra, the state police take care of his security. A central police force is of added advantage as they have a presence across the country and there are not multiple protocol officers involved,” said the official.
He added that the Lok Sabha polls will see a change in security status of many politicians and VIP protectees.
