Special arrangements have been made for the security of foreign guests in the ‘G20’ summit to be held next month. Specially trained commandos have been prepared for the security of heads of state or heads of government of other countries. These commandos will be equipped with Israeli ‘Taver X95’ and Austrian made ‘Glock’ pistols. The security cordon around the foreign guests will have commandos (in plain clothes) armed with ‘Glock’ pistols. After them, soldiers equipped with Israeli ‘Taver X95’ guns will be stationed at a short distance. These include those commandos who have been trained by the CRPF. The number of such commandos is said to be around one thousand.
Apart from this, 4500 Delhi Police personnel armed with ‘MP5’ carbines will protect the foreign guests. Some countries will themselves take responsibility for the security of their President and Prime Minister. Such countries include America, China and Britain etc.
