Baba Ramdev Gets Z-Category Security
Controversial yoga guru Baba Ramdev was given Z-category security. Several former UPA ministers were stripped of their Z-category security. Z-category security entitles Ramdev to cover by 22 armed guards and an escort car. In India, security details are provided to some high-risk individuals by the police and the government, depending on the threat perception to the person. Baba Ramdev had campaigned for Prime Minister Narendra Modi ahead of the Lok Sabha elections this year.
In August 2012, he had been arrested by the police in Delhi while protesting against corruption and the then government headed by Dr Manmohan Snigh.
