Kolkata: Concerned over Railway Minister Mamata Banerjee's reluctance to follow security procedures during her public appearances, the West Bengal government on Thursday said it will ask the Subsidiary Intelligence Bureau to follow standard operating procedures to ensure her security.

"Director Security of West Bengal IB A K Maliwal has been asked to talk to SIB," Home Secretary Samar Ghosh told reporters here after a meeting to review Banerjee's security.

Talks will also be held with the Railway Protection Force authorities in this regard, he said.

Banerjee, who has Z-plus security, does not usually follow the security procedures in her public appearances. Unlike other VVIPs covered under the category, her car mostly remains at the head of her convoy.
