Before Additional Sessions Judge Hardeep Kaur, the accused individuals—Manoranjan D, Sagar Sharma, Amol Dhanraj Shinde, Lalit Jha, and Mahesh Kumawat—expressed their agreement for the polygraph examinations. The court, in response, extended the police custody of all the accused by an additional eight days.

The Delhi Police had sought court permission to conduct polygraph tests for all the accused individuals, a move that received the consent of five out of the six suspects, excluding Neelam Azad.

This development follows a major security breach on December 13, 2023, during which Sagar Sharma and Manoranjan D breached the security cordon, entering the Lok Sabha chamber from the public gallery.

They released yellow gas and raised slogans before being subdued by MPs. Simultaneously, Amol Shinde and Neelam Azad allegedly sprayed colored gas outside the Parliament premises, echoing slogans against dictatorship.
