The Delhi Police disclosed to the Patiala House court on Saturday that the six individuals involved in plotting to breach Parliament’s security and stage a protest inside the Lok Sabha on December 13 aimed to sow anarchy in the country to fulfill their “illegal demands.”

Public Prosecutor Akhand Pratap Singh, representing the Delhi Police, informed Additional Sessions Judge Hardeep Kaur at the Patiala House Courts that the conspiracy had been ongoing for almost two years, with meetings held in Delhi, Gurgaon, and Mysore.

“They wanted to create a situation of anarchy to get their illegal demands met. Look at the time they chose – when Parliament session was going on,” remarked Singh.

The Public Prosecutor presented these details while seeking the remand of the sixth accused, Mahesh Kumawat, who was arrested by the Delhi Police on the same day.

Singh asserted that Kumawat was involved with the alleged ‘mastermind’ Lalit Jha in the destruction of evidence. Following the arguments, Judge Kaur remanded Kumawat to seven days of police custody.

During the hearing, Kumawat informed the court that he was not informed about the reason for his arrest, and he couldn’t comprehend the first information report (FIR) as it was in English, a language he is not familiar with, having studied only until Class IX. Singh countered the claim, asserting that the police had explained the reason for Kumawat’s arrest.

On December 13, during the Lok Sabha proceedings, Sagar Sharma and Manoranjan D entered the chamber from the visitors’ gallery with canisters emitting smoke.

Both were subsequently arrested by the Delhi Police. Additionally, Amol Shinde and Neelam were apprehended from outside the parliament building, where they were protesting with yellow smoke.

Lalit Jha, identified as the alleged mastermind, was arrested on December 14. All the accused are currently in police custody.

On Saturday, Neelam Azad’s parents filed an application before the court, seeking permission to meet their daughter and obtain a copy of the FIR.

The court issued notice to the Delhi Police, scheduling the matter for further hearing on December 18.
