In her RTI application filed before Mehsana Police on November 24, she had sought several documents related to the security cover given to her as per the protocol, including the certified copy of actual order passed by government about providing security.

She also wanted to know the laws and related provisions in Indian Constitution about security cover given to a PM's wife.

62-year-old Jashodaben had asked the government to explain the definition of protocol and sought details about what is included under it and what other benefits she is entitled for as per that protocol.

She also expressed unhappiness about the current security set-up, where her guards travel in government vehicles like car, while she, despite being a PM's wife, has to travel in public transport.

She also said that as former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi was killed by her own security guards, she feel scared of her guards. She asked the government to make it compulsory for each guard to produce the copy of deployment order.

Jashodaben, a retired school teacher, lives with her brother Ashok Modi at Unjha town of Mehsana district. After Narendra Modi was sworn-in as Prime Minister on May 26, she has been given security by Mehsana police.
