New Delhi, Dec 28 (The Street Press India) – On Thursday, Delhi Police requested court approval to use lie detector tests on the six individuals arrested in relation to the Parliament security breach.
The request was presented to Additional Sessions Judge Hardeeep Kaur, who scheduled the matter for January 2, mentioning the absence of counsel for certain accused individuals.
During the plea hearing, the police brought the six accused—Manoranjan D, Sagar Sharma, Amol Dhanraj Shinde, Neelam Devi, Lalit Jha, and Mahesh Kumawat—before the court. They are currently in police custody until January 5. Public Prosecutor Akhand Pratap Singh, representing the Delhi police, informed the court that the “well-planned” attack necessitated custodial interrogation to uncover the “actual motive behind the attack” and determine any connections with other countries or terrorist organizations.
During the anniversary of the 2001 Parliament terror attack, a significant security breach occurred when Sagar Sharma and Manoranjan D jumped into the Lok Sabha chamber from the public gallery during Zero Hour. They released yellow gas from canisters, shouted slogans, and were subsequently overpowered by MPs.
Simultaneously, two additional accused, Amol Shinde and Neelam Devi, sprayed colored gas from canisters outside the Parliament premises while chanting “tanashahi nahi chalegi” (dictatorship will not prevail).
