Remnants of Mobiles Burnt by Parliament Security Breach Mastermind Recovered

New Delhi: Investigators of Delhi police have managed to recover remnants of mobile phones that were burnt down by Lalit Jha, the alleged “mastermind” of the Parliament security breach.

The remains of some broken and burnt mobile phones were from Nagaur in Rajasthan. Police have added IPC sections related to the destruction of evidence against the accused, Lalit Jha.

After the incident on Wednesday, Jha reached Mahesh Kumawat’s place in Nagaur. With Kumawat’s help, Lalit Jha destroyed the mobile phones of the four other accused.

Lalit Jha hails from Kolkata and happens to be a teacher by profession. He and the other five accused have been booked under the anti-terror law UAPA and various IPC provisions.

So far, the police have not found any evidence linking them to any terror group, sources said.

While D. Manoranjan and Sagar Sharma had jumped into the Lok Sabha chamber from the visitors’ gallery with smoke canisters hidden in the soles of their shoes, Neelam Azad and Amol Shinde had protested outside Parliament, also with coloured smoke.

Jha had allegedly shot videos of the protest by Azad and Shinde, posted them on social media and sent them to a friend in Bengal seeking media coverage, before fleeing to Rajasthan.
