The Bombay High Court recently gave relief to a candidate applying for a job at the Central Armed Police Forces (CAPF), after he was turned down for having a tattoo on his ‘saluting’ arm.

A Division Bench of Justices Ranjit More and Bharati Dangre directed CAPF to permit the candidate to participate in the interview round. The Court observed that the placement of the tattoo on his right forearm is such that it will not be visible while saluting.
