Special Protection Force (SPF) holds the responsibility for PM Narendra Modi’s security. SPF is not only accountable for the security of the PM, but also his family. SPF is the premier security force provided to the Prime Minister. Special protection forces are highly skilled and equipped with weapons like automatic guns, pistols like 17-M and FNF-2000 assault rifles.
Many contemplate that there is a nuclear button inside or machine gun. However, it is the responsibility of the nuclear command authority, the Cabinet Control of Security (CCS), to conduct nuclear operations.
SPF also provides security to international guests who visit the country. SPF commanders are appointed by the Central Armed Police Forces and they come under Cabinet Secretariat.
