Centre withdraws Lalu’s NSG commandos



Patna: The Centre has withdrawn RJD chief Lalu Prasad Yadav’s ‘Z+’ VIP security cover of NSG commandos, drawing an angry reaction from his son, who accused the NDA government of hatching a “murder conspiracy”.

The former Bihar chief minister will now be given ‘Z’ category security and be guarded by an armed commando squad of the Central Reserve Police Force, in accordance with the protocol of the scaled down cover, official sources said.

Yadav will not have National Security Guard black cat commandos guarding him any more. The NSG only provides ‘Z+’ security cover.

The decision was taken after the Union home ministry recently reviewed the threat levels of various VIP protectees, the sources said.

Lalu Prasad’s son Tej Pratap Yadav, a former minister and an MLA, hit out at the move.

“They are hatching a murder conspiracy against him (Lalu),” an angry Tej Pratap told reporters outside the state Assembly.

“If my father is killed who will take responsibility for this?” he asked.
