The Centre on Friday provided former CJI Ranjan Gogoi with Z+ VIP security cover for movement across India. Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) has been asked to provide him with the top category security.
A Rajya Sabha member now, Gogoi was earlier being provided with a security cover of the Delhi Police.
He retired in November, 2019 and was later nominated to the upper house of Parliament by the government.
The CRPF has a VIP security unit and Gogoi is its 63rd protectee, sources said.
They said an armed mobile team of 8-12 CRPF commandos will be securing the former CJI during travel while his house will be guarded by a similar team.
