Security for India captain MS Dhoni has been beefed up following intelligence reports of death threats from Maoists and terrorists, according to a police official. The development occurred after Dhoni returned to his home town, Ranchi, with his wife last week. “We are not taking any chances,” said the official. “Commandos of Jharkhand Armed Police will be deployed [as a precautionary measure].” Security personnel in plain clothes have already been deployed near Dhoni’s house.
