I saw that report on a channel today. It was said that the best of the bullet stopping jackets, which really stopped bullets was given to VIPs !!!! And Jawans and officers were given such types that did not even stop a 9MM pistol bullet, leave alone a bullet of an assault rifle like AK-47.

Sandeep, even if the bullet proof jacket was made in the US or Germany, it's still only going to stop a 9mm bullet, not a hail of fire from a high power assault rifle like an AK-47. And moreover, commandos don't prefer wearing bullet proof vests because it makes them bulkier & less mobile...and bullet proof vest also limits carrying other equipment like more ammunition, more optical equipment etc.

Late Hemant Karkare and all have not taken it up with the powers that be about the thick bullet proof vest. It is quite obvious nobody reviews the issues the officials and the security requirement analysers.Things are allowed to go as hey are. There is a need for an urgent review and a quick follow up.
