The person namely Jaswant Singh Khail stormed into Queen’s palace, Windsor Castle, with a weapon but was soon arrested before he could do any damage.
Soon a video appeared on social media, which was initially shared on Snapchat. It showed the accused saying he wanted to kill the Queen to take revenge for the Jallianwala Bagh massacre, in which over 1200 Indians, including children and women, were killed in 1919 after General Dyer, a British officer, asked his force to open fire.
“I am sorry for what I have done and what I will do. I will try to kill Queen Elizabeth of the Royal Family. This is the revenge of those who were killed in the Jallianwala Bagh massacre of 1919. It is also the revenge of those who were killed or humiliated because of their caste. I am an Indian Sikh, ‘a Sith’. My name was Jaswant Singh Chail, my name is Darth Jones.’” He says in the video.
Scotland Yard said they arrested the accused swifty after he barged into Queen’s house. They have booked him under the charges of the Mental Health Act and are investigating the video.
Jaswant Singh, the accused, had entered the house wearing a hoodie and a mask. The reports said he was inspired to adopt this look by a Hollywood movie Star Wars character “Sith”.
Notably, Queen Elizabeth II celebrated Christmas at her home with her eldest son and heir to the throne Prince Charles and his wife Camilla.
