Security at risk
Central agencies take full account of what kind of threat is against which person and the seriousness of the threat, and give their report to the Ministry of Home Affairs. Then according to the category in the central list, the security of the people is decided. Z security has been approved for 60-year-old Gautam Adani. After the approval of the security, the Union Home Ministry has asked the VIP Security Wing of the Central Reserve Police Force ie CRPF to take over its work immediately. With this, CRPF commandos will be deployed in the security of Gautam Adani.
