CISF Takes Over24&7Security at Baba Ramdev’s Food Park-Haridwar

[New Delhi] CISF Takes Over 24X7 Security at Baba Ramdev’s Food Park in Haridwar
Paramilitary force CISF has started providing full-time security cover to yoga guru Ramdev’s food park in Haridwar and deployed close to three dozen armed commandos at the facility. Patanjali Centre Has Faced Bloody Clashes Earlier
A contingent of 34 commandos, under the charge of an Assistant Commandant-rank officer, took charge at the facility on March 22 following Union Home Ministry’s order for 24X7 security deployment early this year.
Such security cover has so far been extended by the Centre to only a handful of private entities such as Infosys.
Patanjali Food and Herbal Park Private Limited has provided the logistics, including barracks for accommodating the personnel as part of the “fully paid” deployment.
Expenditure on security deployment at the multi-acre food park was estimated at around Rs 40 lakh per annum and all logistical facilities like barracks, armoury and vehicles will be provided for by the “client”.
A contingent of the Central Industrial Security Force had been deployed at the facility in the middle of last year for “temporary” security duty after protests erupted there and, early this year, the Home Ministry ordered “permanent” deployment of the force in view of potential security threats to it.
Full-time CISF cover is accorded by the central government very sparingly to the private sector and it is eighth such deployment
The paramilitary was first mandated for such task in the private sector in the aftermath of the 2008 Mumbai terror attacks Ramdev, a yoga exponent who has set up a business empire worth 2 thousand of crores of rupees in personal care and food products sector, is himself a ‘Z’ category protectee of central paramilitary forces.

Duty-Free Shop keepers, At IGI Airport,Smuggling Gold?

[New Delhi] Duty-Free Shop keepers At IGI Airport Smuggling Gold
Smugglers are using the duty-free shop at the Indira Gandhi International Airport here to sneak gold into the country.
There has been an unprecedented five-time jump in cases of gold smuggling in 2014-15 over 2012-13 during which yellow metal worth Rs 1,120 crore was seized.
A total of 4,400 cases of gold smuggling have been registered in the country during 2014-15. About 4,480 kg (4.48 metric tonnes) of the precious metal valued at about Rs 1,120 crore were seized in these cases.
There were 870 cases of gold smuggling registered during 2012-13, five times less than those filed in 2014-15 fiscal.
About 400 kg of gold valued at about Rs 100 crore were seized in these cases.
In 2013-14, as many as 2,700 cases were registered which 2,760 kgs (2.76 metric tonnes) of gold, worth about Rs 690 crore was seized.
As per sources ,Many such issues were discussed during a recent meeting by officials of Directorate of Revenue Intelligence (DRI) with representatives of airlines, immigration, Central Industrial Security Force, Customs and Delhi International Airport Limited (DIAL),
The officials pointed out instances where passengers would hide gold in duty-free shop allegedly with the connivance of ground handling staff manning it. Later, the gold would be ferried out of the airport by one of the personnel working there.
There has also been a demand to regulate the use of mobile phones by ground handling staff and restrict their access within the airport to check gold smuggling,
The Customs authorities have also expressed concern over non-availability of a X-ray machine at the arrival area to exclusively scan hand baggages of passengers,
There have been some cases where people were hiding gold in hand baggages. In most of the cases they are caught, but the possibility of gold coming into the country in few instances without the payment of duty cannot be ruled out
The meeting was called after authorities found either an airline crew or workers of ground handling companies allegedly involved in 80 cases of gold smuggling reported in past three years.
