Uttaranchal to make Baba Ramdev feel safer
Onkar Singh in New Delhi | May 31, 2006 10:50 IST
Uttaranchal plans to modify security arrangements for Baba Ramdev following the arrest of a freelance journalist who allegedly sneaked into the religious leader's helicopter in Himachal Pradesh last weekend.
A decision in this regard will be taken once a special team of the Uttaranchal police, which is investigating the incident, submits its report.
"We gave him two gunmen in March 2005 after assessing the threat perception. These men travel with him in the state. But when he goes out, it is the duty of the other state to provide him with personal security officers," she said.
"We will re-assess his security once I get a report from my team that has already reached Hamirpur (in Himachal Pradesh) on Monday night. This team would understand the developments and check with the Superintendent of Police, Hamirpur, and report to me. Then we would certainly have another look," she said.
