Mumbai Police has given Y+ security to Bollywood star Shahrukh Khan. According to sources, Mumbai Police has received information that some people dissatisfied with the success of his films ‘Pathan’ and ‘Jawaan’ have threatened to kill Shahrukh.
Some media reports have claimed that Shahrukh himself had complained about this, after which he has been given security. Under this Y+ security, 6 personal security officers and 5 policemen with weapons will remain with Shahrukh Khan 24 hours. Till now, two constables of Mumbai Police were present with Shahrukh Khan every moment for his security.
Bhaskar’s team reached Shahrukh Khan’s bungalow Mannat to get more information. There was less crowd there than everyday. The actor’s personal security manager said that he has not yet received any information from the government regarding Y+ security. He has not received any specific information from Mumbai Police either.
Mumbai Police has issued a notification to all the police jurisdictions of Maharashtra and requested all the unit commanders to give Y+ security to Shahrukh Khan with immediate effect. The security personnel present under his security will be equipped with MP-5 machine guns, AK-47 assault rifles and Glock pistols. Police said that four armed policemen will also be present at Khan’s bungalow at all times.
The big thing is that Shahrukh will pay for his security cover himself. Giving this information, the police said that in India, private security personnel are not allowed to be equipped with high-tech weapons. However, this security will remain in place only until the committee reviews the threat.
Earlier, Salman Khan was provided Y+ security after he received threats from Lawrence Bishnoi gang. Apart from this, Aamir Khan, Amitabh Bachchan, Akshay Kumar and Anupam Kher have got X security cover, in which they have got 3 PSOS who stay with them 24 hours in three shifts.
