On Wednesday, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi was tapped on a flyover by demonstrators in East Punjab for 20 minutes, in what was described as a security breach. Mr Modi was on his way to a memorial in the northern state when protesting farmers stopped the road. They were calling for the resignation of a minister whose son is suspected of killing farmers. “This was a severe breakdown in the PM’s security,” the federal home ministry said in a statement. Mr Modi was also set to speak at a campaign event in Ferozepur. The prime minister’s convoy, however, was forced to return to the airport owing to a security lapse, according to the home ministry.
