Police custody of 4 accused in Parl security breach extended

New Delhi: A Delhi Court on Thursday extended the custodial remand of four accused in the December 13 Parliament security breach case by 15 days.

The Secretary General of Lok Sabha wrote to the MHA over a review of security

All four accused – Manoranjan D, Sagar Sharma, Neelam Azad and Amol Shinde – were produced before Delhi’s Patiala House Court earlier this morning. The accused will now remain in Delhi Police custody till January 5.

The four accused arrested in the Parliament security breach case have been charged with stringent provisions of the Unlawful Activities Prevention Act (UAPA).

Opposing their bail application, the Delhi Police counsel told the court that the real motive of the accused behind the Parliament security breach incident is yet to be ascertained.

The Parliament security breach incident occurred on December 13 when two intruders namely, Manoranjan D and Sagar Sharma, jumped into the Lok Sabha from the visitors’ gallery and opened smoke canisters. They were later arrested by the Delhi Police.

Two more persons namely Neelam Azad and Amol Shinde were also held outside Parliament where they opened similar smoke canisters. The major security breach in the Lok Sabha occurred on the 22nd anniversary of the Parliament terror attack when the two arrested intruders jumped into the chamber of the Lower House from the visitor gallery during Zero Hour.

The intruders then jumped from one seat to another and took out canisters when MPs tried to catch them. They released yellow gas from canisters and shouted slogans before being overpowered by the legislators. The incident happened when members were raising matters of urgent public importance and BJP MP Khagen Murmu was raising his issue.

After the security of Parliament was breached, the Secretary General of Lok Sabha wrote to the MHA over a review of security, and a decision was taken that no passes would be issued for the visitors’ gallery till further orders.
