Ex DGP, UP Prakash Singh, famous for police reforms, himself seems to carry an unauthorized police security personnel. The same holds true for ex Delhi Police Commissioner Ajay Raj Sharma
Information from SSP Noida to RTI activist Dr Nutan Thakur says that in case of Ajay Raj Sharma it was decided by Home Department, Government of UP on 11 January 2010 that he does not need any security cover as he has no specific threat to his life but he has been given a security. Similarly Prakash Singh was given a security person for six months on 17 August 2011, yet he carries a security person even a year after the required period.
Hence Dr Thakur has written to the DGP, UP to immediately take necessary action about these unauthorized security covers.
