Ambani given Z+ category security cover as threats to his life mounts

NEW DELHI, Sept 29: Billionaire Mukesh Ambani has been given Z+ security.

The Home Ministry on Thursday upgraded industrialist Mukesh Ambani’s security to the Z+ category from Z after intelligence inputs confirmed that the Ambanis faced threats.

A review of perceived threat perception to him by Central intelligence and security agencies was made, official sources said on Thursday.

The top 'Z+' security cover will be on a "payment basis".

Mukesh Ambani, Chairman and Managing Director of Reliance Industries Limited, was earlier accorded ‘Z category’ security of CRPF commandos in 2013.

Now he wiill be provided security by a total of 40-50 commandos. His wife Nita Ambani has a lower category of 'Y' security cover. Following a bomb scare at Antilia, Mukesh Ambani's residence in Mumbai, last year, his security has been under review.

A Scorpio with 20 gelatin sticks was found parked near Antilia in February 2021.

In August, threatening calls were made to Ambani and the Reliance Foundation Hospital. Subsequently, a man was later held in Borivali West area of Mumbai for threatening Ambanis.

The Supreme Court in 2020 had stayed the orders of the Tripura High Court on a PIL which had challenged the grant of security cover to Ambani and his family and allowed the Centre to continue with the security.

Meanwhile, last month, billionaire Gautam Adani was given the Z category security comprising CRPF commandos.
