The Border Security Force (BSF) and Punjab police recovered a fully wrapped packet with an AK-47 rifle near the International Border. The rifle is suspected to have come from Pakistan, and was found at a farm of a local farmer in Ferozepur. The packet contained “A1” written on it, indicating that other such supplies might exist. With this, the BSF is on a watch in the aforementioned area.
After the "security breach" on PM Modi's arrival in Punjab during Ferozepur visit, the State Government formed a high level committee, to investigate the matter. The committee will submit its report in three days. The formed committee comprised of Justice Mehtab Singh Gill and Principal Secretary of Home Affairs and Justice Anurag Verma, said CMO Spokesperson. Meanwhile, the Union MHA also demanded a report over the "security lapse".
Punjab CM Charanjit Channi refused a "security lapse" on the arrival of PM Modi, as alleged by the Union MHA. On January 5, Channi said, "I was up late night overseeing the arrangements for the rally. 70,000 chairs were put up, but only 700 turned up." He also said that PM Modi's plan to visit Ferozepur via road was made last minute, he was supposed to go by helicopter.

PM Narendra Modi cancelled his Punjab's Ferozepur visit due to a security lapse, on January 5. The decision came after his convoy was blocked by some protestors on a flyover on his way to the city. The MHA called the State Government responsible for ''major security lapses'' and sought a detailed report. Reportedly, PM Modi was scheduled to launch development projects worth Rs 42,750 crores in Ferozepur.
