Seeking 15-day custody, the Delhi Police Special Cell stated they needed to conduct an in-depth investigation to unearth the larger conspiracy behind their acts. A Delhi court sent the four arrested for the Parliament security breach to seven-day police custody on Thursday.

Manoranjan D, Sagar Sharma, Neelam Verma, and Amol Shinde were booked under sections of the anti-terror Unlawful Activities Prevention Act (UAPA) and produced before Additional Sessions Judge Hardeep Kaur’s Court in Patiala House. As per the eyewitness in the house, Manoranjan and Sagar jumped into the Lok Sabha chamber from the visitors’ gallery, and Neelam and Shinde opened smoke canisters outside Parliament.

Additional Public Prosecutor (APP) Atul Srivastava stated in court that the accused were carrying a pamphlet showing the PM as a missing person and that the reward for finding him would be paid by a Swiss bank. APP Srivastava also stated that the shoes in which the accused hid the smoke cans were bought from Lucknow and the smoke cans from Mumbai.

Further, the APP underlined that the accused had created a group called ‘Bhagat Singh Fan Club’. “We need to take the accused to these places. We wish to find out who are the people behind it, what is the funding they got,” added Srivastava.

Counsel Umakant Kataria, representing the accused, said that 3–4 days of custody is enough for the investigation. The FIR was registered against the accused persons under IPC sections 153 (wantonly giving provocation with an intent to cause riot), 120-B (criminal conspiracy), 452 (trespass), 186 (obstructing public servants in discharge of public functions), 353 (assault or criminal force to deter public servants from discharge of their duty) and Sections 16 and 18 of the UAPA.
