Y security for Arnab: Debate Now
How did the Intelligence Bureau arrive at this threat perception? Did it receive or intercept any message from said terror organisations?
Which organisations were offended and have issued threats against the Times Now editor-in-chief?
Why was the security category fixed at "Y"? Why not "Z" or "Z plus"?
Which particular comments made by the Times Now editor had seemed more threatening (and while we are at it, it would help to know which were less threatening).
Did the threat perception affect only the editor in chief of Times Now or all the staffers and workers of the news channel? After all, surely the staff need to be protected in the event of an attack? What plan does the Union Ministry of Home Affairs have for the safety and security of other members of the Times Now team?
And what about protection to the regular invitees in Times Now debates? Are they safe?
How much is taxpayer money being allocated to this very important task and is it being utilised wisely?
We are told Mukesh Ambani pays Rs 15 lakhs for his Z-security on a cost-reimbursement basis. Will the Times Now editor-in-chief and his employers, Bennett, Coleman and Co. Ltd., be similarly burdened?
Are the security personnel trained and equipped adequately? Is a check done periodically on the quality and efficacy of their bulletproof vests? Are they given non-lethal weapons too, like the pellet guns so much in fashion these days? more
