Thiruvananthapuram | Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan’s security cover has been strengthened after an RSS functionary from Madhya Pradesh had announced a Rs 1 crore bounty for beheading him.

Four commandos have been included in the chief minister’s security team after the state security review committee, which met here, decided to take the threat seriously, sources said.

Presently, a team of six police personnel are providing security cover to the chief minister.

The RSS had yesterday sacked its functionary, Kundan Chandravat, who had sparked a controversy by announcing the reward on Thursday to avenge the killing of its workers in Kerala, allegedly by CPI(M) workers.
