At present, 30 police personnel are deployed for round- the-clock protection of Kejriwal, who has refused to take security as part of Aam Aadmi Party's promise to end VIP culture.
    
Besides, two police vehicles guard the Delhi Chief Minister when he is on the move in Ghaziabad.
    
Kejriwal, who along with his family lived in Girnar Apartments situated in Kaushabmi area of Ghaziabad on the outskirts of national capital, shifted to Tilak Lane in Delhi on Saturday.
    
Senior Superintendent of Police Dharmendra Singh said that as per rule, if a minister or a VVIP lives in their jurisdiction, they were bound to provide security to them.
    
"As Delhi CM has shifted his base from Kaushambi to New Delhi, we would inform the state government, which had ordered to provide him 'Z' category protection. After getting government's directive in this regard, we would proceed accordingly," Dharmendra Singh said.
    
Official sources said that the security provided to Kejriwal will most probably be withdrawn.
