Mumbai: Bombay High Court today dismissed a PIL questioning purchase of bullet proof jackets by Maharashtra Government in 2002.

The petitioner Santosh Daundkar had contended that the jackets were of sub-standard quality and they caused the death of former ATS chief Hemant Karkare on the night of November 26,2008 during Mumbai terror attacks.

However, a division bench of Chief Justice Mohit Shah and Justice S C Dharmadhikari held that the decision as to what kind of jackets should have been purchased was a matter of administrative discretion and the court will not examine it.
