The state police have also formulated a new policy under which only protectees in 'Z' plus category or some exceptional cases facing high threat perception, would be provided commandos in security cover.

Beside commandos, cops from the Indian Reserve Battalion and the Punjab Armed Police would be requisitioned for security duty.
