NSG says no to VVIP se­cu­rity du­ties in the fu­ture

The Political and Business Daily - - NATION -

THE NSG, which pro­tects the most 'vul­ner­a­ble' VVIPs of the coun­try, has de­cided to stop tak­ing any more pro­tectees un­der its elite 'black cat' com­mando se­cu­rity cover.

The spe­cial force has taken this de­ci­sion to en­sure the most fool-proof and strict se­cu­rity to the ex­ist­ing VVIPs un­der its cover which in­cludes the likes of Union Home Min­is­ter Ra­j­nath Singh and a num­ber of Chief Min­is­ters.

"We will not be able to man­age more pro­tectees un­der our cover. We pro­tect the most vul­ner­a­ble of the VVIPs and ac­cord­ing to our man­date and present strength we will not be able to take any­more such du­ties," NSG Direc­tor Gen­eral J N Choud­hury said.

The elite com­man­dos of the fed­eral counter-ter­ror force guard 15 VVIPs at present, who are ac­corded the top se­cu­rity cat­e­gori­sa­tion of 'Z+', which gen­er­ally en­tails over two dozen armed com­man­dos with a host of gad­gets and se­cu­rity para­pher­na­lia to se­cure the in­di­vid­ual.
