Smoke Cans, Security Breach On 22nd Anniversary Of Indian Parliament Attack

There has been a security breach in Parliament, coinciding with the day highlighted by Khalistani terrorist Gurpatwant Singh Pannun. In a recent video message, Pannun issued a threat of an attack on Parliament for this particular day.

A significant security breach occurred within the Lok Sabha on Wednesday afternoon. This breach happened on the 22nd anniversary of the Parliament terror attack, during which nine individuals, including eight security personnel, lost their lives. The strike on the symbol of democracy left India in shock.

The 2001 Parliament terror attack was executed by two proscribed Pakistan-based terrorist organizations, namely Lashkar-e-Taiba and Jaish-e-Mohammed. In the incident, five terrorists were killed. Prior to today’s incident, Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla led tributes to the individuals who lost their lives in the attack.

“Their bravery and sacrifice in the midst of peril will always be remembered,” stated the Prime Minister on X, while President Droupadi Murmu expressed, “On this day 22 years ago, the malicious plot by terrorists to eliminate the top echelon of political leadership… and harm our Temple of Democracy was thwarted.”

The security breach occurred subsequent to Khalistani terrorist Gurpatwant Singh Pannun issuing a threat of an attack on this specific day. Following his vow to “shake the very foundation of Parliament,” Delhi Police were placed on high alert.

What Happened?

At 1:02 pm, pandemonium ensued in the Lok Sabha when an individual leaped from the visitors’ gallery and sprinted into the chamber. Another person stayed in the gallery. Both individuals utilized canisters emitting yellow smoke. In a video circulated online, the person who entered the chamber jumped over desks in an attempt to avoid being apprehended.

Nevertheless, he was ultimately surrounded by Members of Parliament (MPs). Lawmakers, understandably anxious about their safety, have raised concerns about the breach, emphasizing that the emitted smoke could have been harmful or toxic.

Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla has stated that a comprehensive investigation will be conducted.

A visitor’s pass was found following the apprehension of the two intruders in the Lok Sabha. NDTV possesses photographs of the pass, revealing that it was issued by the office of Pratap Simha, the BJP MP from Mysuru. It is noteworthy that any visitor must successfully pass through multiple layers of security before gaining access to Parliament.

Congress MP Karti Chidambaram informed NDTV that his initial impression was that someone had fallen from the visitors’ gallery. “It was only when the second person jumped that I recognized it as a security breach… the gas might have been toxic,” he mentioned, urging for a comprehensive investigation.

Smoke Attack Outside Parliament Too

Two additional individuals, a man and a woman, were apprehended outside Parliament. They were found in possession of colored smoke canisters that detonated, emitting red and yellow smoke.

Sources from Delhi Police informed that the two incidents are probably connected. As per the news agency PTI, the man and woman in question have been recognized as Amol Shinde, 25, and Neelam, 42.
