|Harvinder Singh Becomes Hero After Slapping Pawar and Sukhram|
NEW DELHI, India – Reacting to the Sharad Pawar publicly slapping incident; the home ministry, which decides security cover of VIPs on the basis of 'actual' threat perception, will review security of all ministers in the wake of attack on agriculture minister Pawar and may increase the number of personal security officers (PSOs) which are given to them considering their 'position'.
Indian Union Agriculture Minister and Chairman of International Cricket Council (ICC) Sharad Pawar has been slapped by a youth at the New Delhi Municipal Corporation (NDMC) centre in Delhi.
The minister was attacked as he was leaving the premises after attending a literary function. The attacker, identified as Harvinder Singh, was reportedly angry over the minister's inability to control price rise.
The attacker later said that he had attacked him for continuous price rise in the country and he had no regret for his action. The man who assaulted Pawar allegedly attacked another former Union minister on Saturday.
Harvinder Singh had attacked former telecom minister Sukhram in the Rohini courts complex minutes after the special CBI Judge ordered his arrest to serve a five-year jail term in a corruption case.
Sharad Pawar has also served as the Chairman of the Board of Control for Cricket in India from 2005 to 2008. In 2010, Sharad Pawar became the chairman of the International Cricket Council (ICC) after England's David Morgan.
