Kangana Ranaut was given Y-plus security cover by the Union home ministry ahead of her Mumbai visit on September 9.

Kangana Ranaut has said that she will continue to get Y-plus security cover, despite leaving Mumbai on Monday morning. Brijesh Kalappa, an advocate in the Supreme Court, raised questions about the security granted to her by the Union home ministry and asked for it to be withdrawn, now that she was ‘safe’ in her home state, Himachal Pradesh.

“Brijesh ji security is not given based on what you or I think, IB ( Intelligence Bureau) investigates the threat, based on the threat my security grade is decided, by the grace of God in coming days it might get totally removed or if IB report gets worse they might upgrade,” she wrote on Twitter.

Kangana was replying to his tweet, which said, “Y category security for one person costs the Centre over 10,00,000/- each month. This money is borne by taxpayers. Now that Kangana is safe in HP (far away from POK), will Modi Sarkar kindly withdraw the security detail provided to her?!”

On September 7, Kangana was given Y-plus security, ahead of her Mumbai visit on September 9. Earlier this month, she compared Mumbai to Pakistan-occupied Kashmir and criticised the Mumbai Police, leading to sharp responses from many, including Maharashtra home minister Anil Deshmukh and Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut.

Under her new security cover, Kangana is protected by around 10 armed commandos round-the-clock. On Monday, after safely leaving Mumbai, she tweeted in Hindi, “After landing in Chandigarh, my security has visibly decreased... People are congratulating me. It seems like I survived this time. There was a time when I felt a mother’s touch in Mumbai, but today the situation is such that I am lucky to be alive.” She further said that Mumbai is being overrun by a terrorist administration.

Kangana has been taking on the ruling Maharashtra government and has been issuing challenges to the state’s chief minister, Uddhav Thackeray. She has accused him of colluding with the Bollywood ‘mafia’ against her and vowed to expose his ‘underhand’ ways.
