Outgoing Chief Justice of India Ranjan Gogoi, who is set to retire on November 17, will enjoy Z plus security. CJI Gogoi is likely to settle in Assam after his retirement.

The security of the CJI and four other judges was beefed up ahead of the delivery of Ayodhya verdict.

According to sources, Assam police has been entrusted with the security arrangement for Gogoi’s ancestral home in Dibrugarh and another house in Guwahati.

A senior police official said that the department has received a communication from the Union home ministry according to which the CJI’s security cover has been upgraded to Z plus. He further said that they are making all the required arrangements as Gogoi is likely to stay in Guwahati once he retires.

The other members of the bench were Justices SA Bobde, DY Chandrachud, Ashok Bhushan and SA Nazeer and their security cover was upgraded as well.
