Kolkata: Days after he joined the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) ahead of the West Bengal Assembly election, the Union home ministry on Wednesday provided Y-plus security cover to veteran actor Mithun Chakraborty.
Sources say, the Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) will provide security cover to the superstar.
Usually, in a Y-plus security, the protectee gets an elaborate security cover comprising 11 commandos while a team of more than 55 security personnel is deployed at and around the residence of the VIP.
Mithun joined the party on March 7. He was introduced to the voters of West Bengal as “Bangalar Chhele” by Prime Minister Narendra Modi at his Brigade Parade Ground rally earlier this week.
