Overview: 22 years after the Parliament attack on December 13, 2001,  two individuals set foot into the Lok Sabha, the lower house of Parliament. They jumped over from the visitors’ gallery to the area where the Members of Parliament were seated.

The intruders further discharged a yellow-colored canister containing smoke, which was, however, not found to be detrimental but only caused commotion. They shouted slogans, leading to havoc and disruption, which thus resulted in the adjournment of the parliamentary session there and then.

After the incident took place at around 1 p.m. in the Lok Sabha, four individuals were taken into custody, out of which two were confined to the complex of the Parliament and the other two were detained in the vicinity of Transport Bhawan. Later, two more were found to be the culprits in the security breach at the Parliament of India.

The perpetrators have been identified as Neelam Singh (27) from Haryana, Sagar Sharma (27) from Uttar Pradesh, Manoranjan Deveraje Gowda (34) from Karnataka, Amol Dhanraj Shinde (25) from Maharashtra, and Lalit Jha from Bihar. One of the culprits confessed that the attack was being outlined and planned long before it was finally put into effect on the 13th of this month.

Gurjeet Singh Aujla, a Member of Parliament from Congress, took hold of the canister consisting of smoke and was of the opinion that it was a bomb and threw it away out of the Parliament.

The entire occurrence triggered far-reaching criticism and raised major issues about the security measures of the Parliament. Succeeding the same, Om Birla the Lok Sabha speaker, put in order the conference of the Members of Parliament to not only evaluate the security arrangements but also to consider and carry out efficient measures ensuring the safety protocols.

Congress leader Rahul Gandhi said that the reason behind the security breach at Parliament House is the protest against the policies of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, which has led to unemployment in the country.

In the wake of the incident, the issuance of visitor passes has been suspended following the chief scrutiny with the support of the Delhi police.
