Parliament To Get Body Scanners, Security Rules Changed After Breach

Date:

New Delhi: The Parliament complex has been closed to visitors following a major breach on Wednesday afternoon when two men released yellow smoke canisters within the visitors’ gallery, with one making an attempt to approach the Speaker’s Chair. Two others, a man and a woman discharged smoke canisters outside the complex.

Reacting to the alarming incident, Parliament’s security protocols have undergone some major changes. This involves designating separate entrances for Members of Parliament, staff, and the press. When visitors are allowed back, they will enter through a distinct fourth gate.

In addition, a protective glass enclosure will now shield the visitors’ gallery, preventing people from leaping into the Lok Sabha chamber. Parliament will introduce body scan machines, akin to those in airports, for enhanced security.

Moreover, there will be an increase in the number of security personnel stationed inside the House.

The two men, identified as Sagar Sharma from Lucknow and D Manoranjan from Mysuru, were subdued and physically confronted by Members of Parliament. The man and woman outside, Amol Shinde from Latur in Maharashtra and Neelam Devi from Haryana’s Hisar, have also been arrested. All four are under arrest, and the Delhi Police’s anti-terror cell is spearheading the investigation into the incident.
