PUNJAB POLICE have given permission to bulletproof three vehicles of Namdharti sect chief Satguru Uday Singh, it is learnt.

Uday Singh’s security was upgraded to Z-plus category after the sect’s matriarch 88-year-old Mata Chand Kaur, wife of late Satguru Jagjit Singh, was shot dead at Bhaini Sahib on April 4. The probe in the case continues.

“Permission for bulletproofing is required to prevent that unscrupulous and anti-social elements do not get it done for their vehicles,” said a senior Punjab police official.
