Govt To Withdraw NSG From VIP Security Duties

New Delhi, Jan 12: The Union government has decided to completely remove NSG commandos from this task. This will be after over two decades that the ‘black cat’ commandos of the elite counter-terror force will be taken out from VIP protection duties.

The removal of VIP security duties from the NSG will result in freeing about 450 commandos, who will be used to enhance the fighting components of the force that is spread across five hubs in the country and a main garrison in Gurugram near Delhi.

As per a plan being worked out, the security of the VIPs under NSG cover could be handed over to paramilitary forces such as the CRPF and the CISF which already provide security to about 130 prominent persons jointly.
