Gandhi family loses SPG security cover


The Centre on Friday decided to remove Special Protection Group (SPG) security cover given to Gandhi Family – UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi, Congress leaders Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka Gandhi Vadra.

After the highest tier of security in the country is removed from the Gandhi family, they will get Z-plus security by the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF).

The decision was taken after multiple security agencies carried out a threat perception assessment and found there was no direct threat to them, government sources told media.

It may be mentioned here that earlier in August, the government had also removed the SPG cover given to former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and downgraded his security to the Z-plus category.
