Mangaluru, Nov 25, 2019: In the wake of the recent attack on Mysuru Congress MLA Tanveer Sait, the Police Department has decided to provide security to Mangaluru Legislator and former minister U T Khader, informed DCP Arunamshugiri.
It has been gathered that the Police Department has received vital information that a communal outfit was planning to eliminate Muslim political leaders following which security has been stepped up to some leaders.
A police inspector, sub-inspector and three constables along with a security vehicle have been provided for Khader.
Khader is presently busy campaigning for the party in Hunasuru. The police here have contacted the department officials at Mysuru and have instructed to provide security for Khader. He will be provided security here too once he returns to Mangaluru, the DCP has said.
Here it is worth mentioning that Khader had declined gun man security provided to him in the past.
