New Delhi: A petition filed in Ferozepur, Punjab on pm Narendra Modi's security lapses in the past will be heard in the apex court today. Senior advocate Maninder Singh has demanded an inquiry into the matter under the supervision of the Supreme Court. A three-judge bench comprising Chief Justice (CJI) NV Ramana and Justices Suryakant and Hema Kohli is likely to consider a petition filed by lawyers voice, an organisation.
Senior advocate Maninder Singh, appearing for petitioner Lawyers Voice on Friday, told the Supreme Court that breaching the PM's security is not just a law and order problem, it comes under the Special Security Group (SPG) Act. The petition alleged that pm Modi's breach of security was a major deliberate lapse on the part of the state government. Strict action should be taken against the officials of the Punjab Government for this mistake.
Senior advocate Maninder Singh had earlier on Thursday termed the case as a serious lapse and referred it to the Supreme Court and demanded an inquiry. A bench of CJI NV Ramana, Justices Suryakant and Hema Kohli asked Maninder Singh to give a copy of the petition to the Punjab government. Maninder Singh had said that it was a serious mistake by the Punjab government to allow the Prime Minister's convoy to get stuck on the road.
