Mumbai: The Bombay High Court Monday
dismissed a PIL questioning purchase of bullet proof jackets
by the Maharashtra government in 2002, saying such decisions
were a matter of administrative discretion.

Petitioner Santosh Daundkar had contended that the
jackets were of sub-standard quality and 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.
