Chief Minister-designate Arvind Kejriwal was given Z-plus security by Delhi Police under which he will be protected round-the-clock by 12 commandos armed with automatic guns.

“Arvind Kejriwal has been provided with Z plus security,” Special Commissioner (Security) S B K Singh told PTI here.

Under the heightened security cover, armed guards will be kept at his residence and visitors will have to pass through Door Framed Metal Detector (DFMD).

A pilot car followed by two escort cars carrying security personnel will accompany Kejriwal wherever he goes. Kejriwal is set to take oath on February 14 at Ramlila grounds after Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) swept the Delhi Assembly elections by winning 67 seats.

Delhi Police has already conveyed to its counterparts in Ghaziabad about the security arrangements made for Kejriwal.

After he takes oath on Saturday, other facilities such as deployment of traffic police motorcycles for clearance of roads for his convoy will be provided.

The AAP leader had last time not agreed for security measures but Delhi and Uttar Pradesh Police had suo moto made arrangements for his security.
