HM Amit Shah Urges Owaisi To Accept Z Security Cover
New Delhi: After a recent attack on All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen chief Asaduddin Owaisi’s convoy, Union home minister Amit Shah on Monday urged him to accept Z category security offered by the Centre.
In his statement in Rajya Sabha, Shah said a detailed investigation is underway and a report has been sought from the state government.
“Two persons have been arrested and police recovered a car and two pistols. The forensic team is probing the incident and the two men are being questioned by the Uttar Pradesh Police,” he said.
Further, Shah said since Owaisi has refused to accept the security cover, he requests the AIMIM MP to accept the security given to him by the central government.
“He has been provided with Z category CRPF security cover on an all India basis along with a bullet proof car in Delhi,” Shah said.
On February 3, when Owaisi was on his way back to Delhi after a poll-related event in Uttar Pradesh’s Meerut three-four rounds of bullets were fired at Owaisi’s car at a toll plaza in Meerut. He escaped without injuries.
