Bomb suits stuck in rulebooks: RR

After the 26/11 terror attack, a tender for 80 suits was floated in January 2009. The tender was awarded to Techno Trade Impex India Pvt Limited of Mumbai and an order for 82 suits was placed. In June 2009, the government paid about Rs 6.2 crore to the firm. However, when the firm supplied the suits, the government refused to accept them over quality concerns. The state Anti Corruption Bureau (ACB) had initiated probe into the matter and in August 2012, Bimal Agarwal, director of Techno Trade Impex was arrested on charges of cheating and forgery for allegedly supplying inferior quality bomb suits.

The Pune BDDS had placed an order for six bomb suits just a fortnight before the J M Road blasts. But no bomb suit has reached the squad so far.
