hear the news
A CISF official said that from June 14, a total of 64 armed officers led by an inspector-level officer will guard the premises. The company’s registered office and plant located at Genome Valley in Shamirpet area of Hyderabad will be under the protection of the paramilitary force, the official said.
Hence the change in security
An official said that this organization is important when it comes to ensuring the medical and health security of the country. So clearly there could be a threat of terrorist threat on it. Hence, CISF has been entrusted with the task of securing the Bharat Biotech facility in Hyderabad.
After the 2008 Mumbai terror attacks, the CISF was allowed to secure private installations of public importance. In this attack, members of Pakistan-based terrorist organization Lashkar-e-Taiba targeted a five-star luxury hotel and a Jewish Chabad house.
It is noteworthy that CISF provides security to about 10 such centers across the country. These include the campuses of tech company Infosys located in Pune and Mysore, Reliance IT Park in Navi Mumbai, Maharashtra, and yoga guru Ramdev’s Patanjali factory in Haridwar, Uttarakhand.
