Uttar Pradesh’s Ayodhya is now going to become the hub of the National Security Guard (NSG). This will be NSG’s sixth hub in the country. Apart from this, NSG will soon set up its units in Pathankot and Kerala as well. Currently NSG has regional hubs in Chennai, Hyderabad, Kolkata, Mumbai and Ahmedabad.

A senior official said the process was in the pipeline for some time. The unit at Ayodhya will be operational in the next few months and at the other two locations by the end of this year.

Equipped with special weapons and anti-drone system

The official said the units in Ayodhya, Pathankot and Kerala would be operational by this year. This will help in capacity building of local police and other CAPF units and reduce response time for NSG in any adverse situation. He said several rounds of meetings were held before finalizing the decision. Units at these locations will be equipped with special weapons and anti-drone systems.

The decision to set up NSG centers in Pathankot and Kerala has been taken in view of the strategic importance of the border district of Pathankot and Kerala, which is becoming a hub for radical forces and pan-Islamic terrorist groups.

A total of eight NSG centers across the country

After the opening of the new three hubs, there will be a total of eight NSG centers across the country. Presently NSG has five regional centers in Mumbai, Kolkata, Hyderabad, Chennai and Gandhinagar. The official said the three locations were identified based on threat perception and their geographical proximity to nearby sensitive sites. Let us tell you that the Ram temple was inaugurated in Ayodhya in January. It is considered one of the sensitive areas and is always on the radar of various terrorist organizations.
