Kangana Ranaut gets 'Y' category security
MUMBAI [Maha Media]: After assessing the threat perception against Bollywood actress Kanagana Ranaut, the Centre on Monday decided to provide ‘Y ‘category security to her, a Home Ministry source said here.
She will be given security cover of two commandos and 11 security personnel during her stay in Mumbai. The Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) is yet to get the Government order for providing the security cover but it will soon do a preliminary round of security assessment for the actress who was under rows for demanding 'fair probe' in the Shushant Singh Rajput’s suicide case.
Ms Ranaut has thanked Union Home Minister Amit Shah for providing security to her. Taking to twitter, she said “ This is proof that no fascist will be able to crush a patriotic voice, I am thankful to @amit Shah ji as he kept words of a daughter of India , respected my self respect”.
There was a war-of-words between Shiv Sena and Bollywood actor Kangana Ranaut after the latter made controversial remarks about Mumbai by comparing it to 'PoK' and 'Taliban' while slamming a Shiv Sena MP for the alleged threat to Ms Ranaut.
Kangana Ranaut had recently compared Mumbai to Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK), triggering angry reactions from the Maharashtra government and Shiv Sena leaders. Her reaction came after Sanjay Raut had warned her against returning to Mumbai from her home state Himachal Pradesh.
On Sunday, Himachal Pradesh Chief Minister Jairam Thakur announced that the state government will be providing security to Ranaut for her Mumbai visit on September 9. Meanwhile, two separate complaints have been filed with Mumbai Police against Ranaut over her remark.
