The Punjab government, led by Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann, has withdrawn the security cover offered to 424 people in the state. Many retired police officers, religious leaders, and political officials were among those whose security was revoked.

The Punjab government had ordered the removal of security protection for 184 people, including former ministers, MLAs, and other politicians, earlier in April.

Last month, the security cover of former Punjab Chief Minister Charanjit Singh Channi's family, Captain Amarinder Singh's son Raninder Singh, and the wife of Congress MLA Partap Singh Bajwawere was revoked.
