New Delhi: The Supreme Court has constituted a committee headed by retired Supreme Court Justice Indu Malhotra on the issue of negligence in the protection of Prime Minister Narendra Modi during his visit to Punjab on January 5. The committee will include Director General NIA, DGP Chandigarh, IG Security (Punjab) and Registrar General of Punjab and Haryana High Court.
The Supreme Court, while constituting a committee headed by Justice Indu Malhotra, has said that the questions which have arisen cannot be left to any unilateral inquiry, an independent inquiry is required in this matter. Reasons for violating the rules should be known. It should be known who is responsible for all this and what steps should be taken to prevent such omissions from happening again.
The Supreme Court has asked the committee to submit the report as soon as possible. The Registrar General of Punjab and Haryana High Court will present all the safe records before the Chairman of the Committee. It may be recalled that both the Punjab government and the Interior Ministry had formed their own committees to investigate the matter but both had said that they did not trust each other’s investigation.
