Security agencies have discussed with National Security Advisor Ajit Doval certain advisory regarding Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s speech on Independence Day. This has been done in view of the high threat to his life.

According to a report in a leading national daily, PM Modi has been advised by intelligence agencies and the Special Protection Group to address the nation within a bulletproof enclosure at the Red Fort on August 15.

Sources were quoted as saying by the daily that it was hoped PM Modi won’t ignore the advisory this time as threat is “extremely high” this time. PM Modi had ignored bulletproof enclosure during his speech last two years.

The Daily quoted a senior officer as saying that the advisory was not just because of the Kashmir unrest or infiltration at LoC, but there are intelligence inputs about the usage of drones to breach the PM's security cordon. Another factor is the ISIS-led terror attacks across the globe.
