Mumbai: A PIL challenging CRPF security to Reliance Industries Limited chairman and CEO Mukesh Ambani is dismissed  by the Bombay High Court on Thursday. The court has ruled that if security can be provided to private oil refineries, then there should be no issue in providing security to those who set them up as well.
No more  Z category security to Mukesh Ambani-1Two social activists had challenged the governments decision to provide Z category security to Ambani.

The Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) had deployed an elite squad of its commandos for securing Ambani who has been accorded a Z category security after the Home Ministry analysed security threats to the industrialist and found them to be positive.

The CRPF subsequently earmarked a 28-member team for the job, taking personnel out from its battalion based in Uttar Pradesh.
