Azam Khan asked for 'Z' category security from the Yogi government, said - a threat to my life

Actually, in 2017, the Yogi government had taken many big decisions regarding the security of VIPs, under which the Z category security of Dimple Yadav, Ram Gopal Yadav and Shivpal Singh Yadav including Azam Khan was reduced to the Y category. Earlier, the UP government increased the security of SubhaSP chief Om Prakash Rajbhar.

New Delhi: Senior Samajwadi Party leader Azam Khan has appealed to the UP government to withdraw its 'Z' category security. He said that he and his family are getting threats. In such a situation, their security should be increased. Senior SP leader Azam Khan currently gets Y category security. Earlier in the year 2017, when the BJP government came to power in UP, their security was reduced to 'Y' category security.


Azam Khan while talking to the media said that I have received many threats. Many threats have also been given to my family. Therefore, I appeal to the Uttar Pradesh government to return my Z category security.


He said that right now I have Y category security which has no relevance. In fact, in 2017, the Yogi government had taken several major decisions regarding the security of VIPs, under which the Z category security of Dimple Yadav, Ram Gopal Yadav and Shivpal Singh Yadav including Azam Khan was reduced to the Y category.


Earlier, the UP government increased the security of SubhaSP chief Om Prakash Rajbhar.

In the UP assembly elections, the Yogi government provided Y category security to OP Rajbhar, who separated from the BJP and contested with the Samajwadi Party.

It is assessed in view of the danger. It is the job of the government to provide security when there is danger. Any VIP who is given Z category security is accompanied by 22 security personnel and 5 NSG commandos, while in the Y category 11 personnel with 2 commandos and X category 5 or 2 security personnel are deployed.
