Mumbai: After Reliance Industries Limited Chairman Mukesh Ambani was accorded a ‘Z’ category security few years ago, the government has now granted ‘Y’ category security cover of armed CRPF commandos to his wife Nita Ambani.
Nita Ambani has recently been provided a full ‘Y’ cover of about ten armed men who would be travelling with her every time she is mobile, officials said today.
They said a threat assessment report prepared by central security agencies reported requirement of a special security cover for her after which the Union Home Ministry sanctioned the protection.
As her husband was already a Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) protectee, the new responsibility was entrusted to the country’s largest paramilitary as “logistical arrangements” would be easy to do, they said.
“The security cover will be fully paid for, like in the case of her husband. A team of about 10 CRPF commandos with an escort vehicle will secure the new protectee,” they added.
