Supreme Court forms an Independent Committee to Probe PM Modi Security Lapse.

Today, The Bench of CJI Ramana, Justices Surya Kant and Hima Kohli said that they will pass a detailed order to form an independent committee headed by a retired Supreme Court's Judge. The committee will include the IG level officers from NIA and other agencies who would help the judge and the Registry of the Punjab and Haryana High Court. 

The bench also allowed both the Centre and the Punjab government to conduct their individual inquiries into the matter.

Earlier, the Supreme Court on 7th January ordered to preserve the travel record related to the PMs visit and suspended the inquiry of the state and the centre inquiry committees till the court hears the matter further. 

A plea has been filed by an organisation called Lawyers Voice before the Supreme Court. It has sought the suspension of Punjab Chief Secretary Anirudh Tewari and Director General of Police Sidharth Chattopadhyaya.

The plea stated the security lapse was intentional and blamed the Congress government in Punjab for the same.

"The security lapse, as per reliable reports in the print and the electronic media, and as per the Press Information Bureau report of Central Government, was clearly intentional and raises a serious question as to national security and the role played by the present political dispensation in the State of Punjab," the plea said.
