PM's security lapse: SFJ owns blockade, threatens SC judges

The automated, pre-recorded calls apparently came from a UK number, +447418365564, allegedly belonging to the US-based banned Khalistani outfit, Sikhs for Justice (SFJ). The advocates who received the calls told media the caller threatened the judges against hearing the plea for a court-monitored investigation into the PM's security lapse in Ferozepur last week and that the caller also owned up responsibilty for the incident of security lapse.

NEW DELHI, Jan 10: Even as the Supreme Cort said on Monday that it will set up an independent committee headed by a former Supreme Court judge to probe the security lapse that occurred during Prime Minister Narendra Modi's visit to Punjab on January 5, over a dozen apex court advocates received threatening calls from what has been reported as international calls from the US-based outfit called Sikhs for Justice (SFJ), a militant organisation fighting for the creation of a separate State of Khalistan for Sikhs within India.

The advocates told media that the calls apparently came from a UK number reportedly belonging to the SFJ and owned up responsibility for the blockade of the Modi's convoy. The anonymous caller also threatened the judges against hearing the plea for investigation as they could not punish the perpetrators of the 1984 anti-Sikh riots.

The Supreme Court Advocates-on-Record Association has written to the Secretary-General of the Supreme Court seeking action against the caller. According to the letter, several advocates-on-record received the anonymous automated pre-recorded call from +447418365564, one at 10:40 am and another at 12:36 pm on Monday.

"I received a call from a UK number which said that they would take responsibility for the blockade the motorcade of the PM. The caller said that SC should not be hearing the matter when they did not find a single culprit responsible for the killing of Sikhs in 1984," one of the advocates who received the call told Times Now. "I received two calls. It said that we take the responsibility for blocking the PM's cavalcade. It was a pre-recorded message of 47 seconds," Advocate Vishnu Jain told Times Now.

The calls, if proved to be true, reveals a suspected conspiracy behind the blockade that happened in Punjab's Ferozepur.

Meanwhile, the farmers who were protesting over MSP on the Prime Minister's route reportedly said that they were not aware of a last-minute change in Modi's route and that he was going to travel on the same road as they were protesting. As per the official itinerary, the Prime Minister was scheduled to take the helicopter to his rally venue.

The apex court said that that the DGP of Chandigarh, NIA IG and the Registrar-General of Punjab and Haryana High Court may be part of the proposed panel to probe the incident of lapses in security during Modi's visit. The Central and State inquiries may not materialise in view of the Supreme Court instituting a probe.

The Supreme Court was hearing a plea filed by an organisation, Lawyers Voice, seeking a court-monitored investigation into the breach in Modi's security. On January 5, the Prime Minister's convoy was stranded on a flyover due to a blockade by farmers protesting over MSP in Ferozepur. He returned from poll- bound Punjab without attending the rally.
