Which other celebs have Y+ security cover?
In November 2022, actor Salman Khan’s security was upgraded from the existing X category to Y+ in view of threats from the Lawrence Bishnoi gang, allegedly involved in the murder of Punjabi singer Sidhu Moozwala.
Kangana Ranaut was granted Y+ cover with Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) security by the Union Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) in 2020 after a spat with Shiv Sena MP Sanjay Raut, in which she compared Mumbai to Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK). In which he claimed that his life was in danger in Mumbai.
State governments decide the level of security or VIP, while in the case of the Center the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) takes the decision. States or MHA make assessments based on inputs from intelligence agencies, including the Intelligence Bureau and Research and Analysis Wing (RAW) at the Center level and the State Intelligence Department at the State level.
