Mukul Roy Asks Centre To Withdraw Z Category Security As Threats Presumed To No Longer Exist After Rejoining TMC: ReportTMC leader Mukul Roy

Former union minister Mukul Roy who recently returned back to the Trinamool Congress after spending four years in the BJP has written to the Central government requesting it to withdraw his Z category security, Times of India has reported.

As per the report, as Roy has gone back to the TMC, the threats against him are presumed to no longer exist.

"It could be assumed that the threat was no longer valid", a central official has been quoted as saying, who adds that as the request has been made by Roy himself, it may be accepted.

Roy had joined the BJP in 2017 and was promptly provided security cover by the Home Ministry. The report says that he might receive a similar security detail from the state agencies on the orders of Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee.
