CRPF commandos provide Asaduddin Owaisi with 'Z' category security

New Delhi : On Friday, the government decided to provide prominent Muslim leader and Hyderabad MP Asaduddin Owaisi with 'Z' category security from CRPF commandos.

According to official sources, CRPF commandos will be stationed in Owaisi 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The decision to give the All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) chief 'Z' category security came a day after his car was allegedly fired upon in Hapur while he was returning to Delhi after attending election-related events in western Uttar Pradesh.

No one was hurt in the incident, according to Owaisi, who also urged the Election Commission to conduct an independent investigation. Prashant Kumar, Uttar Pradesh's Additional Director General of Police (Law and Order), said one person involved in the incident had been apprehended and a pistol had been seized from him.
