Parliament, Lok Sabha Security Breach LIVE Updates: Delhi's Patiala House Court on Thursday, 14 December, sent four accused persons in the Parliament security breach case to seven-day police custody.

This comes a day after intruders jumped into the Lok Sabha from the visitors' gallery while proceedings were underway for the Winter Session. Apart from the four arrested persons, two people have been detained. Lalit Jha, one of the key accused in the case, was arrested late on Thursday, news agency PTI reported.

Four of the accused set off coloured smoke canisters and resorted to sloganeering both inside and outside the Parliament.

In the visuals on Sansad TV, a man wearing a blue jacket can be seen jumping over benches in the House. Rajendra Agrawal, who was in the chair, immediately adjourned the session.

The Home Ministry ordered a high-level probe into the breach to be led by the paramilitary CRPF chief. The probe will also involve the Anti-Terror unit and Special Cell of the Delhi Police.

What We Know About the Accused So Far:

  • Two protesters who were arrested from outside the Parliament have been identified as Neelam (42) from Hisar, Haryana, and Amol Shinde (25) from Latur, Maharashtra.
