NSG and IB to guard Indian team

Following the death of Pakistan’s coach Bob Woolmer in Jamaica, The Indian cabinet  has decided to  send personnel of the Intelligence Bureau and the National Security Guards to the West Indies to look after the Indian team’s security during the on-going World Cup.

The group going to West Indies will include a two member advance-liason team comprising one officer each of the IB and the NSG. This team will immediately leave for Port of Spain and remain there for a week to work out arrangements with the organisers of the tournament.

The IB would depute two more officers to the Regional Intelligence Fusion Center till the return of the Indian team. This is done to co-ordinate sharing of intelligence.

Further, one officer each of the IB and NSG will remain with the Delhi Police will remain with the Indian team. Two 16-member bomb disposal squads of the NSG will operate in the West Indies under the over all command of the Caricom Organisation, Planning and Co-ordinating Staff.

Parliment Affairs minister Priyaranjan Dasmunshhi said the expenditure will cost Rs. 2.58 crores.
