New Delhi, Aug 26 (TIWN) The government has withdrawn the Special Protection Group (SPG) security cover of former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, officials said on Monday.

A statement from the ministry of home affairs said that Singh will now have Z-plus security instead of SPG, "The current security cover review is a periodical and professional exercise based on threat perception that is purely based on professional assessment by security agencies. Dr. Manmohan Singh continues to have a Z+ security cover," it said.
