HC seeks Centre’s reply on PIL seeking awards for 26/11 heroes

The Bombay High Court on Tuesday asked the Centre to file within a month its response to a petition demanding Ashok Chakra as well as gallantry awards for officers belonging to various agencies who had fought terrorists during the 26/11 terror attack in the city.

The direction was given by a bench headed by Justice P V Hardas on a public interest litigation filed by social activist Ketan Tirodkar.

The Centre had earlier informed that it had rejected a proposal sent by Maharashtra government to confer Ashok Chakra and gallantry awards on fire brigade personnel who had risked their lives in fire-fighting operations during the attack.
