Home Minister Chidambaram to inaugurate NSG hub
The National Security Guard (NSG) hub set up at suburban Andheri is slated to be inaugurated by Union Home Minister P Chidambaram on June 30, a senior official said in Mumbai on Wednesday.
“The state’s NSG hub, set up on a 23-acre land at Tungwe in Marol on state police property, will be inaugurated by Home Minister Chidambaram,” the official said.
Following the Mumbai terror attacks, the Centre has decided to set up the hub here in Mumbai, comprising trained anti-terror, anti-hijacking Army commandos.
Launch of the operation to flush out the terrorists was considerably delayed as NSG personnel had to be moved from their base in Manesar in Haryana to Mumbai.
The hub will be equipped with all facilities to launch operations in and around Mumbai, reducing response time.
