The investigators have found that the Parliament intruders wanted to create anarchy in the country and compel the government to meet their “illegal” demands.

The investigators have told Delhi Court  group that the group responsible for a shocking breach of Parliament’s security wanted to create anarchy in the country, as the probe’s focus shifted to the fifth accused, Lalit Jha, who was described as the brain behind the conspiracy, HT reported.

Jha, who was sent to seven days in police custody, surrendered to the police before being arrested late on Thursday. 

Delhi Police’s Special Cell is now probing the role of two people allegedly associated with Jha – identified as brothers Kailash Kumawat, 27, and Mahesh Kumawat, 32, residents of Nagaur in Rajasthan.

The investigators submitted a remand application to additional sessions judge (ASJ) Hardeep Kaur, saying that Jha had allegedly confessed to his involvement in the case, the report said.

It added the remand application, according to people aware of the matter, disclosed that all the accused – four men and a woman – met a number of times and executed the conspiracy.

“Jha disclosed that they wanted to create anarchy in the country so that they can compel the government to meet their illegal demands,” said the application, the report mentioned.

Four other people accused of the crime – Sagar Sharma and Manoranjan D, who walked past three layers of security before rappelling down from the visitors’ gallery and spraying coloured smoke inside the Lok Sabha, and Amol Shinde and Neelam Singh, who were arrested while shouting slogans outside Parliament – were remanded to police custody for seven days on Thursday.

The brazen incursion on Wednesday – which came on the anniversary of the 2001 Parliament attack – was made possible by an unlikely conspiracy stitched together by an e-rickshaw driver in Lucknow, the son of wage labourers in Latur, a government job aspirant in Jind, an engineering graduate in Mysuru and a tutor from Kolkata.

The accused first started interacting as members of a Facebook page dedicated to freedom fighter Bhagat Singh and carried out the attack using visitor passes procured from BJP lawmaker Pratap Simha.
