New Delhi: A day after AIMIM chief and Lok Sabha MP Asaduddin Owaisi convoy was allegedly fired upon, he has been given Z category security cover by the government sources said.

The 'Z category' is a security detail of 22 personnel, including four to six National Security Guard (NSG) commandos and police personnel. It is provided by the Delhi Police or the Indo-Tibetan Border Police (ITBP) or Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) personnel along with one escort car.

Earlier on Friday, Owaisi asserted that he has never sought security cover and he never would, because it is the government's responsibility to protect his life.

Asaduddin Owaisi on Thursday alleged that four shots were fired at his vehicle at Chhijarsi tollgate in Noida. He was returning to Delhi from Kithaur, Meerut after campaigning for the Uttar Pradesh elections.

The MP alleged that 3-4 rounds of bullets were fired upon my vehicle by 2 people near Chhajarsi toll plaza, they were a total of 3-4 people.

"Some time ago my car was fired at Chhijarsi toll gate. 4 rounds fired. There were 3-4 people, all of them ran away and left the weapons there. My car got punctured, but I got out in another car and left. We are all safe," Mr. Owaisi tweeted.
