The National Security Guard Thursday donated over Rs 1 crore to the Prime Minister's National Relief Fund in the wake of the recent devastating floods in Kerala. Director General of NSG Sudeep Lakhtakia presented the donation cheque to Home Minister Rajnath Singh at the latter's office in the north block here, a senior official said.
"The amount totalling Rs 1,01,48,077 was raised through the contribution of NSG personnel who donated one day's salary," Lakhtakia said. The about 10,000-personnel strong National Security Guard is tasked to undertake counter-terror and counter-hijack operations and is the federal contingency force for such tasks. It was raised in 1984.
