So, in this article we will know what are the types of securities and how will they guard the public servants.
In India there are X,Y,Z and Z+ securities. Z+ is the top most security. SPG (Special Protection Group), NSG (National Security Guards), ITBP (Indo-Tibetan Border Police) and CRPF (Central Reserve Police Force) are the agencies that guard our public servants. Prime Minister, President, High court, Supreme Court Judges, cabinet ministers and leading officers are among those who enjoy these securities. Now let us know about who will be given which type of security.
Z+ Category Security:
This Category of security is being enjoyed by only 10-15 persons in India that include, PM Modi, Amit Shah, UP CM Yogi Adityanath. They are guarded by 55 personnels that include 10 NSG commandos who will be carrying MP5 guns and ultra modern communication gadgets.
