Ghaziabad cops to give ‘Z’ security to Arvind Kejriwal
Notwithstanding Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal’s stand against taking any security cover, Ghaziabad police has decided to provide ‘Z’ category protection to him from Monday. As per the security plan outlined by the district police, 30 personnel would be deployed round-the-clock to provide security to Kejriwal. The CM presently resides with his family in a flat in Girnar Apartments in the Kaushambi area of Ghaziabad. He had earlier turned down the Ghaziabad SSP’s offer for security cover. ‘Despite the Delhi CM’s refusal, we have decided to provide him with 24-hour ‘Z’ category security. Two head constables and eight constables will be deployed outside Kejriwal’s house from tomorrow. Besides, two Personal Security Officers will also be posted as part of the Delhi CM’s security detail,’ SSP Dharmendra Singh said. He added that Kejriwal will now have two escort vehicles accompanying him when he is on the move in Ghaziabad. These vehicles would be carrying two head constables and six constables armed with sophisticated weapons. ‘The two police vehicles will guard the Delhi CM when he is on the move in Ghaziabad,’ Singh said.
