Thanks to NSG, Mulayam Singh survived a fatal crash

It was the fag end of December 1990 when an official originally from the CRPF joined the National Security Group (NSG) on deputation and took over as Group Commander 12 Special Rangers Group. The group was tasked to provide ‘mobile security to VIPs/VVIPs and Netaji Mulayam Singh Yadav, Samajwadi Party patriarch happened to be one of such 18 personalities. Neither an MLA nor an MP: But then Mulayam Singh Yadav was neither an MLA nor an MP and had become a former chief minister of the most populous state of Uttar Pradesh. In a way, he was in the wilderness and had a huge bungalow. No accommodation to NSG: Although Netaji boasted of a massive furnished residence, the elite NSG commandoes deployed to provide security cover literally had no accommodation. However, some of them managed to get housing facilities in the UP PAC lines and had food in the mess on cash payment. Interestingly, they had no Tactical Proficiency Trainer (TPT), forgetting any firing range to carry out target practice
