New Delhi: The Centre has removed three commandos involved in protecting National Security Advisor (NSA) Ajit Doval, in response to the security breach event that occurred in February of this year, sources said.
Sources claim that the commandant in charge of VIP protection at NSA Doval as well as the deputy inspector general (DIG) were transferred.
Ajit Doval’s home experienced a security breach in February 2022 when a man attempted to enter the building. Security guards stopped him, and the Delhi Police later took him into custody.
According to sources who spoke to a leading magazine, the man driving the red SUV attempted to open the gate to Doval’s high-security central Delhi home.
The car was stopped and the man was arrested by the Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) personnel who guard NSA Doval’s house.
According to sources, the man was identified as Shantanu Reddy, claiming his body had a chip which was being controlled externally. However, an MRI scan made it clear that there was no chip in his body.
The NSA has been provided with a top Z+ category of CISF commandos. NSA Doval was present at his residence when the incident occurred.
