The Supreme Court on Friday allowed the Centre to continue with the protection of industrialist Mukesh Ambani and his members of the family in Mumbai.

The Tripura judicature on a PIL filed by one Bikash Saha passed two interim orders on May 31 and June 21 and directed the Central government to put the first file maintained by the ministry of home affairs (MHA) regarding threat perception and assessment report of Ambani, his wife and kids supported which security has been granted to them.
