In an alarming breach of security on Wednesday (December 13), two individuals leaped into the Lok Sabha chamber from the public gallery, as reported by Congress MP Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury, asserting that they carried tear gas canisters. During the Zero Hour proceedings, one person was witnessed vaulting over the benches while another dangled from the public gallery, spraying tear gas, Chowdhury detailed to reporters.

Reports suggest that the passes for the intruders were purportedly recommended by BJP MP Pratap Simha. However, a thorough investigation into this claim is currently underway.

The protesters who were detained by the police outside the Parliament are indentified as Neelam (42) and Amol Shinde (25).

Describing the incident, Congress MP Karti Chidambaram stated, "Suddenly two young men, around 20 years old, jumped into the House from the visitor's gallery, carrying canisters emitting yellow smoke. One aimed towards the Speaker's chair, shouting slogans. The potentially poisonous smoke poses a grave security threat, notably on December 13, reminiscent of the 2001 Parliament attack."

MPs apprehended them, and security personnel escorted them out. The House adjourned until 2 pm.
