Ajit Doval is protected under the central VIP security list as a “Z plus” category protectee, and the Special Security Group (SSG) section of the CISF is in charge of providing security. Despite this, there was a security breach at NSA Doval’s residence, and the aftermath saw 3 CISF commandos being dismissed from service.
After an earlier security breach at the home of National Security Advisor (NSA) Ajit Doval, this year it is understood that three commandos of the Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) were discharged from their positions and two senior officers of the force’s VIP security unit were reassigned, reports The Tribune.
According to the central VIP security list, Doval is a “Z plus” category protectee, and the CISF’s Special Security Group (SSG) division is in charge of providing security.
A court of inquiry set up by the CISF into the incident on February 16 found the five officers guilty on numerous charges and recommended actions against them, according to officials, who stated the punitive measures have been implemented.
The Deputy Inspector General (DIG) in charge of the team and his second-in-command, a senior commandant-rank officer, have been transferred, according to the officials, whilst three commandos of the SSG have had their employment terminated.
On February 16, at around 7:30 am, a guy from Bengaluru tried to drive his vehicle into the high-security residence of Doval in central Delhi.
The three commandos, who have since been fired, were there that day as members of the security detail at the NSA’s residence. The man was stopped outside of the house and brought to the Delhi Police.
