HYDERABAD: Union Minister of State for Home Affairs G Kishan Reddy has clarified that Y-plus category security was provided to Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut at the request of the Himachal Pradesh government. He said this while responding to a question at a press meet held in the city on Friday.

Reddy said Kangana Ranaut's father [Amardeep Singh Ranaut] had requested the Himachal Pradesh government to help provide security for his daughter.

"He had petitioned the Himachal Pradesh Chief Minister. In turn, the Himachal Pradesh government appealed to the Centre to provide the security since it was an inter-state affair," The Minister of State for Home revealed.

Kishan Reddy also underlined that "The Centre has not interfered in the [Sushant Singh Rajput] case. It was the Supreme Court who ordered a CBI enquiry. The Centre has not interfered in the case."
