Parliament security breach case: Court grants police more time to complete probe

New Delhi, Mar 11 (PTI) A city court on Monday granted Delhi Police more time to complete its investigation in the Parliament security breach case.

New Delhi, Mar 11 (PTI) A city court on Monday granted Delhi Police more time to complete its investigation in the Parliament security breach case.

Additional Sessions Judge Hardeep Kaur gave 45 more days to police to conclude the investigation, after the prosecution moved an application on their behalf, claiming certain reports were awaited and scrutinising voluminous data will take time.

The Delhi Police had urged the judge to grant them three more months to complete the investigation.

Without the court's permission, the probe agency would have had three months from the day of the arrest to complete the probe.

According to law, if a probe agency fails to complete the investigation within the stipulated time, the accused in custody has a statutory right to bail.

In a major security breach on the anniversary of the 2001 Parliament terror attack, two people -- Sagar Sharma and Manoranjan D -- jumped into the Lok Sabha chamber from the public gallery during Zero Hour, released yellow gas from canisters and shouted slogans before being overpowered by MPs.

Around the same time, two other accused -- Amol Shinde and Neelam Azad -- also sprayed coloured gas from canisters while shouting 'tanashahi nahi chalegi' outside Parliament premises.

The accused, along with Lalit Jha and Mahesh Kumawat, are currently in judicial custody. PTI UK RHL
