The security cover to Indian cricket team captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni has been downgraded to Y from Z category by Jharkhand government, according to the state’s top police officer.

“The decision to reduce the security category of Dhoni was taken at a recent review meeting on security-related matters being provided to important personalities,” said the Director General of Police Rajeev Kumar while adding that the decision was taken on the basis of intelligence information that the cricketer has no threat.

The DGP said Dhoni used to get nine police personnel as per Z category security and following downgrading of security to Y category he would be provided with seven police personnel. “But there should not be any concern for his security as whenever he returns home it would be more than the Z category,” Kumar added.

He said Dhoni was given Z security some months ago following intelligence report of some threat but now there was no such threat so the review committee decided to downgrade his security to Y category.

Dhoni’s residence is situated at Harmu in Ranchi. Whenever he is in town, he goes to the Deori temple, about 50 km from the state capital, with some pockets of the route being Naxal-hit. He also loves riding motor-cycle alone when in town.
