Dhanbad MP Pashupati Nath Singh is in danger of life. It is not clear from whom this threat is, but the District Police has asked the MP to install CCTV at his Dhansar residence. Also, his bodyguards have been asked to keep the MP in the security cordon during public events. According to the information received, a message has been given to the MP from the Dhanbad Police that immediately install CCTV cameras around the house.
SI Sangeeta Kumari Sahu of Dhansar police station called the bodyguard of the MP on 20 November and informed about it first. Later, Dhansar's Inspector cum Police Station Incharge Jairam Prasad also called and said that he should be cautious about security. However, till now the MP has not received any kind of threat, but after the police information, the MP and his family have become concerned about safety. There is four District Police personnel under the protection of three times MLA from Dhanbad and three times MP PN Singh. First, he got three bodyguards. Recently another bodyguard has been given. They have not got a house guard. All bodyguards have been asked to remain with the MP. On leaving the state headquarters, a bodyguard has been given permanent permission to accompany the MP.
MP PN Singh said in the direction of the District Police to install CCTV and take vigilance, it is beyond comprehension. If they (MPs) are in danger of life, then it is the failure of the state government and the district police. The government which cannot provide security to the MP here, what protection will it give to the general public. The police only gave information. What kind of danger is there on them. It should be disclosed. House guards should also be found. What will happen by installing CCTV at home? No senior police officer has even talked to him in this matter. The police do not even come here for patrolling. Crime is increasing in Dhanbad. Major scandals are happening. Those scandals have not even been revealed.
