Former PM Manmohan Singh’s security downgraded from SPG to CRPF

New Delhi | Former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh will now get a Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) cover instead of his top Special Protection Group (SPG) security, which has been withdrawn.

Sources say Manmohan Singh’s security has been reassessed as part of an annual exercise to review SPG cover, which is given to the country’s most protected politicians, including Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Congress president Sonia Gandhi and her children Rahul and Priyanka Gandhi.

Based on threat perception, SPG is given to former Prime Ministers and their families.

However, in some cases like former PM Atal Bihari Vajpayee, his foster daughter had given up the SPG cover.
