Justice Indu Malhotra: Indu Malhotra is the chairperson of the Supreme Court committee investigating the Prime Minister’s security.
Justice Indu Malhotra and the chairperson of the Supreme Court’s inquiry committee into the security lapses of the Prime Minister have received threats. His life has been threatened by the Sikh for Justice (SFJ) organization, according to media reports. The organization has also released audio clips threatening her. It says that he must choose between Prime Minister Modi and the Sikhs. In the audio clip, it is also said that he should not continue investigating the matter. Furthermore, the organization said in its threat that we will not allow the former Supreme Court judge to investigate this matter under any circumstances. Additionally, it was also mentioned in this clip that we will be creating a list of Supreme Court lawyers. The clip also mentions that earlier we had notified the advocates.
PM Modi and Sikhs were at odds, but you (Indu Malhotra) have filed a complaint against SFJ and put yourself in a dangerous situation. We will now hold the anti-Muslim and anti-Sikh Supreme Court advocates accountable. Information about that has been provided by the media. However, Trend India searches do not confirm this audio clip. There were many lawyers of the Supreme Court who received threatening calls in this case.
The Supreme Court’s lawyers were contacted even before this
Several Supreme Court lawyers claimed to have received a recorded threat via phone earlier on January 10. He was threatened not to take up the matter in the Supreme Court and not to help with the hearing of the case of Modi’s security lapse. Sikhs for Justice (SFJ) is said to have issued this call. The responsibility of stopping Modi’s convoy in Punjab was also delegated in this message. It also claimed that the Supreme Court’s judgment concerning the killings of Sikhs during the 1984 riots was not sufficient. Mahesh Jethmalani, a senior advocate, has asked the NIA to investigate the incident. The audio sent by Sikh for Justice USA to AOR (Advocates on Record) in the Supreme Court should be taken seriously, he tweeted.

What’s the matter?
Prime Minister Narendra Modi visited Ferozepur in Punjab on January 5. Because of heavy rains, the prime minister had to travel by road, but protesters were spotted along the way, 30 km from Hussainiwala, which led his convoy to remain in a very dangerous area for 20 minutes. In addition to terrorists, the area where PM Modi’s convoy stopped is considered a stronghold of heroin smugglers. In September last year, a terrorist attack took place in the same area.
Home Ministry accuses Punjab government
The Punjab government has already been informed about the Prime Minister’s schedule and travel plans, according to the Home Ministry. However, they did not make any preparations for this. In response to the route change, the Punjab government had to deploy additional security forces to ensure road safety, but no other measures were taken.
