New Delhi, July 2 - Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh Wednesday ordered a review of the VIP security cover given to political leaders and other individuals by the erstwhile Congress government.

At a high-level meeting here, the minister said security arrangements should be reviewed and suitably strengthened, wherever required.

He also directed officials to carry out security audit of vital installations, wherever due and ensure deployment of additional security forces, if found necessary, for the safety of the VIPs.

Budget provisions earmarked for making security arrangements will be reviewed and suitably enhanced, he said.

Besides, the minister instructed officials to explore avenues for strengthening bilateral security relations with neighbouring countries.

Singh said efforts should also be made to join neighbouring countries to implement the Mutual Legal Assistance Treaty (MLAT) in criminal matters.
