Court dismisses PIL challenging 'Z' category security to Mukesh Ambani
If security can be provided to private oil refineries, then there should be no issue in providing security to those who set them up: HC
Mumbai: The Bombay High Court on Thursday dismissed a PIL challenging CRPF security to Reliance Industries Limited chairman and CEO Mukesh Ambani. The court has ruled that if security can be provided to private oil refineries, then there should be no issue in providing security to those who set them up as well. Two social activists had challenged the government's decision to provide 'Z' category security to Ambani.
The Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) had deployed an elite squad of its commandos for securing Ambani who has been accorded a 'Z' category security after the Home Ministry analysed security threats to the industrialist and found them to be 'positive'.
The CRPF subsequently earmarked a 28-member team for the job, taking personnel out from its battalion based in Uttar Pradesh.
Sometime ago, Ambani's office had also informed the Mumbai police about threat letters being issued to the honcho purportedly on behalf of the home grown terror group Indian Mujahideen (IM).
