He said that if the authorities do not consider it appropriate to upgrade the security cover, a review will be done again in the next six weeks.

Threat to life and property

Taking into account the stand of the police officers, the High Court observed that if the petitioner is still aggrieved, he can take recourse to due process of law. Senior advocate Vikas Singh, appearing for Chakrapani, submitted that the level of security provided to him was inadequate and there was serious threat to his life. He said that apart from Dawood Ibrahim, he is also receiving constant threats from Chhota Shakeel and his henchmen and other anti-social elements to Chakrapani.

Chakrapani, national president of Sant Mahasabha and Akhil Bharat Mahasabha, argued that on 23 September 2021, without giving any prior notice and without assigning any reason, his security was reduced from ‘Z’ category to ‘X’. The petition, filed through advocate Rajesh Raina, contends that the security cover was downgraded arbitrarily and unjustly, putting the life and property of the petitioner in danger.
