Mumbai: The Maharashtra government on Thursday
told the Bombay High Court that various establishments
including the likes of Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation,
Bombay Stock Exchange and SEBI, have sought security staff
from Maharashtra State Security Corporation (MSSC).

The corporation has been set up to provide security to
vital installations and institutions in the state.

The court was hearing a bunch of PILs regarding the
security situation, in the aftermath of 26/11 terror attack in
Mumbai.

An affidavit filed by PT Goud, Secretary (Home), stated
that a fresh recruitment drive for hiring 2,500 personnel for
the Corporation was on.

The affidavit also stated that action has been taken on
several of the recommendations of the Pradhan Committee,
which was set up after the attack.

At the last hearing, the court had expressed unhappiness
over the affidavit filed by the state for being vague.

Today, along with the affidavit, the government also
filed a report about confidential security measures, weapons
purchase etc, in a sealed cover.
