The central government withdrew the Z category security cover of former West Bengal minister and Trinamool Congress leader Rajiv Banerjee. Official sources gave this information on Wednesday. It is believed that he himself had requested to withdraw the security provided by the Central Reserve Police Force.
Banerjee had contested the last assembly election from Domjur in Howrah district on a BJP ticket but lost to Trinamool Congress leader Kalyan Ghosh. Sources said that the Union Home Ministry withdrew his Z-category central security cover (authorized in West Bengal).
