Chandigarh: The Punjab government has issued bulletproof vehicles to three more Hindutva activists in Punjab. The leaders who have received bulletproof Ambassador vehicles recently included Shiv Sena Punjab chairman Rajeev Tandon, Hindu Suraksha Samiti chief Swami Panchanand Giri and Shiv Sena Hindustan leader Pawan Gupta. Shiv Sena Punjab president Sanjeev Ghanoli has already been given such a vehicle around one-and-a-half months ago.
As per media reports the Home department suspects that these Hindu leaders could be attacked before assembly election results on March 11. Following alleged intelligence inputs in this regard, the Home Department has given bulletproof vehicles to these Hindutva leaders.
Apart from bulletproof vehicles, the leaders’ security cover also has been reviewed and strengthened further, reads a report in Time of India (ToI).
Confirming that he has got a bulletproof vehicle recently, Shiv Sena Punjab chairman Rajeev Tandon reportedly told TOI that the car was given to him following threats to his life. He said the car was delivered around 4 days ago.
President of Shiv Sena Hindustan Pawan Gupta also confirmed that he has got a bulletproof vehicle recently.
“Though I have police protection for the past 20-25 years, I received a bulletproof vehicle from the government recently,” said Pawan Gupta.
A Hindu organisation leader said most of these leaders already have a Gypsy vehicle which carries cops on security duty with them, notes ToI.
