In a major security lapse on December 13, the anniversary of the 2001 terrorist attack on Parliament, two men jumped from the audience gallery into the Lok Sabha chamber during Zero Hour, released yellow smoke from a ‘can’ and raised slogans. The accused were later controlled by the MPs. Around the same time, two other people released colored smoke from ‘canes’ while raising slogans outside the Parliament complex. A committee headed by CRPF Director General Anish Dayal Singh is looking into the overall security issues of the Parliament complex and will make recommendations to the Union Home Ministry for improvements.
