Kin of PM, Atal, Sonia to get Z-security

New Delhi, November 12
Keeping in view the enhanced abduction threat from Pakistan-based militant group Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM), the Centre has decided to provide maximum security to the kin of VVIPs, including Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, Atal Bihari Vajpayee and Sonia Gandhi.

A decision to this effect was taken at a meeting chaired by Home Minister Shivraj Patil in the middle of last month and was implemented recently after carrying out a review of the security to the kin of the VVIPs, official sources said.

Among others, grandchildren of Manmohan Singh, Sonia Gandhi and Vajpayee will be provided with Z-security. The meeting was called after the security agencies in J & K intercepted a wireless message of the JeM that suggested that militants were planning to kidnap kin of these VVIPs to secure the release of some militants lodged in various jails of the country.
