According to reports, a meeting in this regard was held with the Ministry of Home Affairs, Ministry of External Affairs, Intelligence Bureau and other security agencies.
The meeting viewed the security of the CJI is very ‘flimsy’ and need to be rectified.
The meeting viewed ‘anyone could walk up to the CJI and garland him or take a selfie with him.
“This practice is not appreciated and must be stopped immediately,” the official letter issued by Delhi Police Joint commissioner of police in charge of security, ID Shukla, stated.
