Indian security tycoon takes dig at G4S following 'guard deployment blunder' ahead of London Olympi
London, July 15 (ANI): Indian security apparatus tycoon Richie Nanda has hit out at rival G4S for failing to recruit enough security staff for the London 2012 Olympics, and increased his stake in rival Shield Guarding Company from 51 to 100 per cent.
The multi-millionaire, who holds a doctorate in martial arts from Indiana University and was famed for his lavish birthday parties in India, said G4S's failure to provide enough security staff for the Games was "bad for the country".
"It looks like G4S got a bit too ambitious, that they were a bit overstretched. They tried to bite off more than they can chew." The Independent quoted Nanda, as saying.
Nanda has reportedly taken full control of London-based Shield through his security empire Topsgrup, which protects the Indian Premier League cricket in India and is the biggest company of its type in that country. He initially bought in to Shield back in 2008, but will now become executive chairman.
The original deal valued Shield at 29 million pounds, though he has taken the remainder "a bit cheaper" as some of the management were looking for a financial exit. (ANI)
