'Anyone Can Walk Up and Take a Selfie with Him': Govt Concerned over 'Flimsy' Security of CJI Ranjan Gogoi

New Delhi: Raising concerns over the security cover provided to Chief Justice of India (CJI) Ranjan Gogoi, a high-level meeting was held with the Ministry of Home Affairs, the Ministry of External Affairs, the Intelligence Bureau, and other security agencies.

Gogoi's security was termed very "flimsy", reported news agency ANI.

A letter written by Delhi Police Joint Commissioner (Security) ID Shukla said Gogoi's security is so flimsy that “anyone could walk up to the Chief Justice and garland him or take a selfie with him”.

Security agencies have now been directed to step up arrangements for the CJI and to secure parking of his convoy and deploy either a close proximity team or a close ring team.

"The current security scenario requires that all stakeholders should go the extra mile to ensure foolproof security for all the high dignitaries," the letter said.

There have been incidents where the CJI was surrounded by the public who started taking selfies following which the meeting was called to discuss the issue.
