Decision to this effect was taken on recommendation of a meeting of the state security committee recently. The ailing socialist leader has been the former Union Minister and ex-president of JD(U).

In addition to Fernandes, suspended JD(U) Rajya Sabha member Anil Sahni, embroiled in the LTC scam case, has also lost his place in the list of VVIPs who are provided security.

The security of Narendra Singh, friend-turned foe of Chief Minister Kumar, has been downgraded from Z-category to Y-category, the notification said.

Former chief of the state Human Rights Commission SN Jha and former head of Kosi Bandh Katan Manch Rajesh Walia have also been taken off from the list of persons provided security coverage, the notification added.
