Lapse In PM Modi’s Security In Punjab Was Part Of A Well-Planned Conspiracy: BJP  

New Delhi: The Supreme Court-appointed Justice Indu Malhotra Committee which probed the security breach during Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s visit to Punjab in January this year has indicated that the then Ferozepur Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) failed to take requisite action.

A three-judge bench comprising Chief Justice N V Ramana, Justices Surya Kant and Hima Kohli today perused the report submitted by Justice (retired) Indu Malhotra who conducted the inquiry. The Chief Justice said the court would send the report to the government for further action.

BJP has alleged that the lapse in the security of Prime Minister Narendra Modi in Punjab in January this year was part of a well-planned conspiracy. Briefing media in New Delhi today, Union Minister and BJP leader Anurag Thakur said, during the incident, the then Chief Minister of Punjab Charanjit Singh Channi of Congress and DGP were missing.

Mr. Thakur claimed that it is a clear indication of a conspiracy. He said the agitators were merely one hundred metres away from the bridge on which Prime Minister’s vehicle halted and the Pakistan border is just 10 kilometers away. Mr. Thakur questioned who gave the information of the Prime Minister’s route to protestors.

He said, the Supreme Court panel has commented that the Ferozpur SSP failed to discharge his duty and maintain law and order. Thakur also said, the Punjab police had ample time to provide an alternate route to the Prime Minister’s convoy.
