Delhi Police is mulling over the kind of security to be provided to Pakistan President Asif Ali Zardari when he stops for four hours in Delhi enroute to Khwaja Moinuddin Chishti’s shrine in Ajmer on a “private visit” this Sunday.

As Zardari is not coming as a state guest,the police are thinking of deploying plainclothes policemen. According to the protocol,if a leader from another country visits Delhi in private capacity,he or she will have to cough up Rs 850 per policeman deployed on the route.

“We generally waive off the fee… We provide policemen in plainclothes,” said a senior officer. There were talks to accommodate Zardari’s visit to Hazrat Nizamuddin dargah in Delhi but officials said they did not have any confirmed details on this.
