Parliamentary Security Breach: Delhi Court Extends Police Probe, Custody of Accused

Extension Granted for Investigation into Parliamentary Security Breach Incident; Accused Remain in Custody

A Delhi court has approved an extension for the Delhi Police to conclude its investigation into the breach of Parliamentary security, registered under the UAPA (Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act) 1967. All six accused individuals will remain in custody until May 25.

Special Judge Hardeep Kaur has granted the Delhi Police’s special cell an additional 30 days to complete their investigation. The police had sought an extension, requesting 45 more days to finalize their inquiry.

During the court proceedings, accused Manoranjan was permitted to communicate with his mother via video conferencing. Another accused, Neelam Azad, did not raise objections to extending the investigation period.

Previously, on March 11, the court had already extended the investigation time by 45 days. Moreover, the Judicial Custody of all accused persons has been prolonged by another 30 days. The accused were all present in court physically.

Earlier, Neelam Azad’s bail plea was rejected by the court citing the gravity of the charges against her and the preliminary stage of the investigation. The FIR in this case includes charges under various sections of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) and the Unlawful Activities Prevention Act (UAPA). The investigation is still at its initial stage, and the accusations against Neelam Azad and others are severe, concerning the undermining of India’s sovereignty and integrity.

During the previous hearing on January 16, the Delhi Police presented evidence linking Neelam Azad to the crime, opposing her bail due to the ongoing investigation. Notably, the accused individuals are described as influential, and their release on bail could impede the probe. Furthermore, the gravity of the offense and potential punishment are also factors considered in bail decisions.

The case revolves around a security breach at Parliament on December 13, 2023, coinciding with the anniversary of the 2001 Parliament attack. Presently, all six suspects are in judicial custody.
