Parliament security breach: Mahesh Kumawat, sixth accused arrested

Mahesh Kumawat, the sixth accused in theĀ Parliament security breach case, was arrested by the Delhi Police on Saturday after officials confirmed that he was also part of the entire conspiracy. The arrest was made after an hours-long interrogation.

Mahesh, a resident of the Nagaur district of Rajasthan, had also come to Delhi on December 13 when two people jumped into the Lok Sabha chamber from the visitors’ gallery, setting off smoke canisters and sending a nationwide shock.

It was to Mahesh’s hideout in Rajasthan that the key conspirator, Lalit Jha, had escaped from Delhi after the incident. Mahesh also joined Lalit in destroying the mobile phones of the four accused arrested initially, police told India Today.
