Background

The Committee was appointed on 5 April 2016.

It was constituted three months after terrorists belonging to Pakistan-based terror group Jaish-e-Mohammed had breached the Indo-Pak border in Punjab and attacked the Pathankot airbase killing seven security personnel.

Recently in the first week of March 2017, the Supreme Court directed the committee to oversee and monitor the progress of Indo-Bangladesh border fencing carried out by the Union Government. The top court also asked the panel to submit its report in four months.
