The government said that it has issued seven show-cause notices to the officers seeking an explanation why no action should be taken against them for the incident.

DS Patwalia, Advocate General of Punjab, told the court that the records have been taken into consideration by the Registrar General of the Punjab and Haryana High Court.

PM Modi's convoy was stuck on a flyover when he was on his way to Hussainiwala in Ferozepur district to visit National Martyr's Memorial.

Meanwhile, Supreme Court asserted, "Yes there is a breach and Punjab govt has admitted as well. The question is if an inquiry is held, what will be its scope. If you want to take disciplinary action against officers what remains for this court to look into?"

The Supreme Court on Monday resumed a plea seeking a court-monitored probe into the breach of Prime Minister Narendra Modi's security during his visit to Punjab's Ferozepur.
