Mossad may be protecting Modi at Turkey G20 summit, paper claims

The Times of India wonders aloud if Mossad agents, together with their British MI5 colleagues, might be part of Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s special protection detail as he attends the G20 summit in Antalya, Turkey, this week.

Indian security services upped the premier’s security deployment, the newspaper reports, following Friday’s terror attacks in Paris. The paper then offers some details, or perhaps some fevered speculation:

Special squads comprising unidentified foreign origin agents — speculated to be from Mossad and MI5 — have been roped in and dispatched to Turkey’s capital Ankara and Antalya where the G20 summit is to be held.

They will work with Indian agents and form additional cover for the PM [Modi] who is secured by the sleuths from the Special Protection Group and secret agents. Local agents from Turkey and neighboring Syria will remain in Antalya through the summit, it has been learnt.

The crisis possibilities in Turkey range from mass shootings to the venue being attacked either from the ground or air. Both situations will result in a lockdown.

The evacuation plan aims to get the PM out of any possible crisis including an aerial attack. An aircraft with a hefty remote security cover will be on standby in Turkey for Modi. It will be equipped with advanced radar and warning system, a separate defense and communication systems.
