The Supreme Court on Wednesday appointed a 5-member panel headed by former judge Indu Malhotra to probe security breach during Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s Punjab visit.
Director-General of National Investigation Agency, Director General of Security of Punjab and Registrar General of Punjab and Haryana High Court are the other members of the panel.
The panel will look into the causes of the security breach that left PM Modi’s convoy stuck on a flyover for 15-20 minutes.
Supreme Court on Monday stated that it will form a committee to probe Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s security lapse case. It has asked all current inquiries to stop. Two parallel inquiries were announced, one by the Centre and another by the State.
Bharatiya Janata Party has been running a campaign to blame the Congress-led Punjab government for the security lapse.
