MHA team grills Punjab Police officers for 5 h

A team of the Union Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA), which reached Ferozepur to investigate the lapse in the security of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, questioned ADGP Cyber ​​ Nageswara Rao for 50 min today. A large group of farmers had stopped the convoy of the prime minister on 5 January.

The fact-finding team of the MHA reached the flyover of Village Pyarayana of Ferozepur at around 10:20 AM, where the farmers had stopped the convoy of Prime Minister Modi two days ago. In the examination of the spot that lasted 40 min, the officials checked the points of the flyover from where the farmers had climbed the main road.

Following the examination, Cabinet Secretary (Security) Sudhir Kumar Saxena led the investigation team to the BSF Headquarters in Ferozepur. Balbir Singh, Joint Director of IB, IG S Suresh of SPG were included in the team.

The committee constituted on the orders of the MHA had already reached the BSF headquarters at 4 AM. On the basis of the video footage and photos that had gone viral, the MHA officials conducted a reconnaissance of the place where the prime minister’s convoy had to halt.

Earlier, on the day of the security breach, a central team had checked the security arrangements and questioned the police officers and government employees. The police officers reportedly failed to answer the questions.

The team then interrogated the police officials at the BSF headquarters. The MHA team questioned police officers of Moga, Bathinda, Faridkot and Ferozepur.

The MHA officials stayed away from the media, but sources revealed that the preliminary investigation said that due to the negligence of the police, the prime minister’s convoy had to wait and return.

The MHA team visited the shrine for martyrs at Hussainiwala, where Prime Minister Modi had paid homage to Shaheed-e-Azam Bhagat Singh, Sukhdev, Rajguru and Batukeshwar Dutt. The team visited the surrounding areas too.

The MHA team had directed 14 Police officers to reach the BSF headquarters to find out the reason behind the breach in the security arrangements made for the prime minister. The team had sent a letter to Punjab Chief Secretary Anirudh Tiwari, Joint Secretary Security D Sai Amutha Devi, DGP Siddharth Chattopadhyay, ADGP Cyber ​​ Nageswara Rao, ADGP Jitendra Jain, IG Patiala Mukhwinder Singh Chinna, DIG Ferozepur Range Inderbir Singh, DIG Faridkot Surjit Singh, DC Ferozepur Davinder Singh, SSP Ferozepur Harmandeep Singh Hans, SSP Moga Charanjit Singh Sohal, Kotkapura duty magistrate Varinder Singh, Ludhiana Joint Commissioner Ankur Mahendru, DC Bathinda APS Sandhu, SSP Bathinda Ajay Maluja and those in charge of the VVIP control room in Ferozepur at 10 AM, directing them to appear at the BSF headquarters.

Sources said the police officers, who appeared before the MHA team with documents, kept blaming each other to save themselves from trouble. The team members have started reading all the documents from the official of the police so that the decision can be reached.
