Jammu, January 06 :
An official spokesperson of the Punjab Government has disclosed that the state government has ordered a high-level probe into the security lapses during Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s visit to Punjab on Wednesday.
The panel will submit its report in three days.
The panel would comprise Justice Mehtab Singh Gill (retd) and Principal Secretary, Home Affairs and Justice, Anurag Verma.
The committee would submit its report in three days, the spokesperson said.
In a “major security lapse”, the prime minister’s convoy was stranded on a flyover due to a blockade by protesters in Ferozepur on Wednesday after which he returned from poll-bound Punjab without attending any event, including a rally at Ferozpur, a politically vibrant town in Punjab.
The Union Home Ministry directed the state government to file an immediate report, saying it did not ensure the required deployment, while Union Home Minister Amit Shah said that such dereliction of the security procedure during the prime minister’s visit is totally unacceptable and accountability would be fixed.
