According to sources, if the Mumbai Police does not get adequate support, the team of CRPF commandos providing Y plus security cover to Kangana will be reported to the Union Home Ministry. Right now two commandos have been deployed for 24 hours under Kangana's security. These include one in civil dress and the other in uniform. They both have weapons.
A person with Y plus category protection gets about 15 security personnel. They give duty in three shifts. There is also a security cordon at home and office. When the Union Home Ministry receives a report from the IB or CRPF that describes Kangana's security as a threat, the ministry may consider updating her security cover. That is, it can be given Z-class protection from Y plus.
Sources say that if a state ignores or is negligent in providing security at the local level to a person with Y plus category security, the Union Home Ministry can urge the concerned state to cooperate in that matter. The security cover of the person concerned can be increased on the IB report.
Kangana has targeted Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray as he reached Mumbai on Wednesday. Kangna tweeted that my house is broken today, tomorrow your pride will be broken. Even before the actress reached Mumbai, BSmi dropped the illegal construction at her bungalow in Bandra. Shiv Sena activists have started protests in many places.
Sources in the security agencies say that Kangana will now stay in Mumbai for the next several days, in which case the role of the local police will be important for her. It will be in the hands of Mumbai Police to prepare local security circles and clear traffic routes etc. for them. The help of Mumbai Police will also have to be sought for local intelligence.
