certified by the Centre," an official said.
The agency supplies these jackets to the Border
Security Force, Central Reserve Police Force and National
The jackets cost between Rs 32,000 and Rs 45,000 and
have been tested at the Central Forensic Science Laboratory,
The Department has received flak over the quality of
the bullet-proof jackets worn by officers like slain ATS chief
