The Supreme Court on Friday expressed concern over the taxpayers' money spent on providing security to people who don't deserve it.

An apex court bench headed by justice GS Singhvi observed: "How much we are spending on the security of the people who don't deserve it?"

The court made the observation while hearing a petition seeking its directions on the use of vehicles with beacon lights given to VIPs.

The judge said one can understand security given to the president, vice president, prime minister and Lok Sabha speaker but wondered why this was extended to others too.
