After Rs 11 cr bill, Maha says ITBP security a costly affair
Mumbai: After getting a staggering bill of
nearly Rs 11 crore from the Indo-Tibetan Border Police (ITBP)
for guarding 26/11 terror convict Ajmal Kasab, Maharashtra
government says the ITBP security is a costly affair.
"I have ordered DG police to replace ITBP security with
Maharashtra police personnel. ITBP security is costly," Home
Minister R R Patil told reporters here today.
Demanding a concession in the bill, Patil said, "The
attack on Mumbai is an attack on the nation. We demand
concession in the bill amount."
The ITBP force slapped a bill of Rs 10.87 crore on
Maharashtra Government for guarding Kasab at the Arthur Road
jail and sought its reimbursement which has stunned the state.
R K Bhatia, Director General of ITBP, whose 200 commandos
provide 24-hour security to Kasab, had raised the bill for
reimbursement of expenses incurred between March 28, 2009 and
September 30, 2010.
The ITPB was deployed in the jail where a Special Court
held conducted trial of Kasab, the lone Pakistani gunman who
was arrested on the night of 26/11.
