The Central government has accorded the “Z-plus» category security cover to Punjab Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann. The “Z-plus» security cover was sanctioned to Bhagwant Mann in view of possible threats to him emanating from the country and abroad.

Bhagwant Mann will now be given the VIP protection by the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF). Bhawant Mann will be protected across the country.

The official sources quoted by agency PTI said that the CRPF will soon take over the task of providing security to Bhagwant Mann. A total of 55 armed personnel have been earmarked for it.

The “Z-plus» security cover has not only been provided to Bhagwant Mann. It will also cover the Punjab chief minister’s residence and protect his immediate family members too.

Such a security cover for Bhagwant Mann was recommended by the Central intelligence and security agencies during the preparation of a ‘threat perception analysis’ report of the chief minister in the wake of Khalistani activities in the border state, they said.
