The Centre has accorded the top category 'Z+' VVIP armed security cover to newly-appointed Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath. The cover will be provided by a special commando team of the CISF along with a small contingent of the Uttar Pradesh police.
"The Chief Minister's security has been bolstered and he will now be secured by a strong team of CISF commandos everytime he moves across the country. A similar commando contingent will be deployed at his official residence," a senior officer said.
As part of the new and upgraded security paraphernalia, Adityanath will have about 25-28 commandos accompanying him with sophisticated weapons at all times he is mobile and his convoy will have pilot and escort vehicles armed with jammers. The review in security category of Adityanath comes after the Intelligence Bureau’s threat perception report flagged upgradation of his protective cover.
Under the 'Y' cover, he was accompanied by about 2-3 commandos when he travelled, officials said. A Central Industrial Security Force squad from its Special Security Group (SSG) has recently taken charge of his security in Lucknow, they said.
