J&K govt to setup 3-member panel to review security of protected persons


The Jammu and Kashmir government today ordered the constitution of a three-member committee to review the security of protected persons, a day after a serious security breach at the residence of former chief minister Farooq Abdullah.

An official spokesman said this decision has been taken in view of the incident at the residence of former chief minister and Lok Sabha member Farooq Abdullah at Jammu.

Yesterday, a man forcibly drove into the residence of former chief ministers Farooq and his son Omar, both Z-plus protectees, in Jammu and ransacked the house before being shot dead by CRPF personnel guarding the premises.

The committee will be headed by the additional director general of police (Security).
