The Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF), which is responsible for the security country’s VVIPs, has decided to include Level-4 type vehicles in its convoy so that IED attacks and terrorist attacks can be thwarted easily.

According to the information received from sources, the Ministry of Home Affairs has approved the procurement of these vehicles, and soon, they will be included in the CRPF convoy.

According to security experts, Level-4 vehicles can easily withstand huge IED explosions, and also, weapons like AK-47 have no impact on it. This way, they keep the VVIP safe.

The Special Protection Group (SPG), which provides security to the Prime Minister of India, already has Level-4 cars.

Earlier, CRPF was responsible for the protection of 54 VVIPs. However, the number has reached 58 after the Centre decided to withdraw SPG protection from the Gandhi family along with former PM Manmohan Singh and gave the responsibility to CRPF.
