Parliament Attack: 6 Arrested, Investigation Underway

Six people were behind a serious Parliament attack on wednesday, 13 December 2023, according to police sources. The incident raised concerns about the effectiveness of the security measures in the new building, which had multiple levels of screening.

Two individuals, Sagar Sharma and D Manoranjan, released yellow smoke inside the Lok Sabha, while Neelam Devi and Amol Shinde set off red and yellow smoke canisters outside. Lalit Jha, the fifth person, provided accommodation for the group in his Gurgaon home. The sixth person, Vicky Sharma, also from Gurgaon, has been arrested in connection with the incident.

Who These 6 People Are And How They Planned To Parliament Attack ?

In the initial investigations, it has been found that the two individuals who released smoke inside the Lok Sabha are Sagar Sharma from Lucknow, Uttar Pradesh, and D Manoranjan from Mysuru, Karnataka. The two caught outside Parliament are Amol Shinde from Latur, Maharashtra, and Neelam Devi from Hisar, Haryana.

Sagar Sharma and Manoranjan were sitting in the visitors’ gallery of the Lok Sabha before causing the disruption. They had entrance passes arranged by BJP MP Pratap Sinha’s office. Mr. Sinha, the ruling party’s lawmaker from Mysuru, plans to meet with Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla to clarify the situation regarding the pass requests.

The six individuals, who have known each other for four years, planned and executed the disruption together. They even surveyed the Parliament complex as part of their planning. Although all of them wanted to enter Parliament, only Sagar Sharma and Manoranjan received the passes. Currently, there is no evidence suggesting that they were influenced by any terrorist group.

The police have provided additional details, including the Aadhaar cards of Sagar Sharma and D Manoranjan. Neelam Devi, aged 42, is revealed to be a teacher studying for the civil services. According to her brother, she actively participated in the controversial farmers’ protest of 2020 against the government’s farm laws but is not associated with any political party.

Parliament Was Under Smoke: What Was Actully Happened?

On Wednesday afternoon, during a Zero Hour session in the Lok Sabha, Sagar Sharma jumped from the visitors’ gallery into the chamber. He released a yellow smoke canister and tried to jump from desk to desk to reach the Lok Sabha Speaker’s Chair in an extraordinary scene.

Members of Parliament (MPs) overpowered and captured him, and some MPs even physically confronted him. Meanwhile, his accomplice, Manoranjan, who was in the gallery, also released a smoke canister, likely to divert attention.

Just before this security incident inside Parliament, Neelam Devi and Amol Shinde set off smoke canisters with yellow and red smoke outside and shouted slogans against dictatorship.

All those involved have been taken into custody and are currently being questioned by Delhi Police’s anti-terror cell.

To reassure concerned MPs about their safety, Lok Sabha Speaker Mr. Birla assured them that a thorough investigation would be conducted. He mentioned that all individuals involved have been apprehended, and materials in their possession have been seized.

Usually, when there’s a security breach or Parliament attack, authorities and security forces are expected to respond quickly and implement measures to prevent a similar incident from occurring again. However, in a surprising turn of events, a recent security breach occurred on the exact anniversary of the notorious Parliament attacks that happened 22 years ago. This is not just embarrassing but also raises concerns about how well-prepared our security agencies are.
