Centre okays purchase of jackets for police

Last Updated: Wednesday, July 27, 2011 - 15:09

Mumbai: Maharashtra government today
informed the Legislative Assembly that Centre had sanctioned
purchase of 2,000 bullet-proof jackets and 10,000 SLR rifles
for the state police.



"Last night, the Centre sanctioned 2,000 bullet-proof
jackets and 10,000 SLR rifles," state Home Minister R R Patil
told the House after the Question hour.

The government had come under fire post the July 13
blasts in Mumbai for allegedly not implementing the security
measures suggested by Pradhan Committee, which had been set up
after the terror strike in November 26, 2008.

The previous purchase of bullet-proof jackets has been
mired in controversy with allegations of irregularities and
jackets being sub-standard.
