The Home Ministry has constituted a three-member committee to probe the "serious lapses in the security arrangements" during Prime Minister Narendra Modi's visit to Punjab.

The three-member committee will be led by Sudhir Kumar Saxena, Secretary (Security), Cabinet Secretariat. The other two members are Balbir Singh, Joint Director, Intelligence Bureau, and S Suresh, IG, SPG.

The committee is directed to inquire about the alleged lapses in the security arrangements of Modi “which led to the exposure of the VVIP to grave risk”.

The committee has been advised to submit its report at the earliest.

This move comes just comes ahead of the Supreme Court’s hearing on the Prime Minister’s security breach. Former Additional Solicitor General of India Maninder Singh moved SC seeking an independent probe into the PM's security breach. The top court will hear the matter on January 7.

Modi’s convoy was stranded on a flyover for over 20 minutes on Wednesday due to a blockade by protesters in Ferozepur, after which he returned from poll-bound Punjab without attending any event, including a rally.

Meanwhile, the Union Home Ministry has also directed the Punjab government to file an immediate report. The ministry said that the State government did not ensure the required security deployment.
