Security Breach in Indian Parliament: An Attempt to Create Anarchy

In a shocking turn of events, a group of six individuals conspired to breach security and protest inside the Lok Sabha, India’s lower house of Parliament, on December 13. The aim behind their actions was to create anarchy in the country in order to fulfill their “illegal demands.” This revelation was made by the Delhi Police during a court hearing at the Patiala House court. Public Prosecutor Akhand Pratap Singh, representing the Delhi Police, informed Additional Sessions Judge Hardeep Kaur about the severity of the conspiracy.

According to Singh’s submissions, the conspirators had been planning and organizing their activities for nearly two years. Meetings were held in various locations, including Delhi, Gurgaon, and Mysore. The timing of their actions was particularly significant, as they chose to strike when the Parliament session was in progress. The accused wanted to exploit the chaotic atmosphere to ensure their “illegal demands” were met.

During the court proceeding, Singh sought the remand of the sixth accused, Mahesh Kumawat. Kumawat was believed to be involved with the alleged mastermind, Lalit Jha, in destroying crucial evidence. After hearing the arguments, Judge Hardeep Kaur granted the Delhi Police’s request and remanded Kumawat to seven days of police custody.

However, Kumawat expressed his confusion regarding the reasons for his arrest, stating that he had not been adequately informed. Adding to his hardship, he claimed that the first information report (FIR) was in English, a language he did not understand as his education had only gone up to Class IX. On the other hand, the prosecution contested Kumawat’s claim, asserting that the police did explain the grounds for his arrest.

To date, four other individuals have been arrested in connection with the security breach. Sagar Sharma and Manoranjan D were apprehended inside the Parliament chamber, while Amol Shinde and Neelam were picked up outside the Parliament building, where they were protesting with yellow smoke. Lalit Jha, believed to be the mastermind behind the operation, was arrested a day later. All the accused are currently in police custody, pending further investigation.

In a related development, the parents of Neelam Azad, one of the arrested individuals, filed an application before the court, seeking permission to meet their daughter and obtain a copy of the FIR. In response, the court issued a notice to the Delhi Police and scheduled a hearing on December 18 to address the matter.
