The National Security Guard (NSG) has asked the Haryana government to ban construction of high-rise buildings within 100-metre radius of its 1600-acre campus in Manesar.
The elite commando force said that buildings within the range of 500-metre radius of the facility should not be more than two-storey.
Anil Kumar, DIG, Administration Station Commander, wrote a letter to state chief secretary PK Chaudhary, saying that the presence of high-rise buildings in the vicinity can be a security threat for the unit.
“Of late, it has been observed that the land adjacent to the NSG campus is being acquired by various builders and they have constructed high-rise buildings on that land. The construction of the high-rise buildings near the NSG campus is a serious security threat as they provide clear view of the day-to-day activities inside the campus,” he said in the letter.
According to officials, the threat perception on the NSG’s Manesar headquarters has increased after the ‘Black Tornado’ commando operation during the 26/11 Mumbai terror attack.
Kumar also said that the buildings can cause obstruction in helicopter training.
Officials of the Haryana government could not be reached for comments.
