The Apex Court has dismissed a PIL seeking withdrawal of Z+ security cover given to Reliance Industries Chairman Mukesh Ambani and his family. It was observed in the case that it is for the State to assess and review the threat perception of the individual and take a call on such issues. 

A bench of Justices headed by Ashok Bhushan dismissed a plea filed by petitioner Himanshu Agarwal against the order dated December 2019 of the Bombay High Court. 

The Bombay High Court in its order had said that the State was bound to provide Z+ security to individuals willing to bear the entire cost for security to protect their lives in view of their own grave threat perceptions. 

The HC had noted that the Ambani family was willing to bear the entire cost to protect their lives in view of their own grave threat perceptions. 

It was further held that “Mumbai Police Commissioner has no option but to ensure that the highest level Z+ security is provided to these private individuals or any authority is convinced about the existence or otherwise of real threat to their life or liberty, particularly when they are willing to bear the entire cost for the said security to protect their lives in view of their own grave threat perceptions”.
