The suspect has been taken to Parliament Street police station where a team of senior police officers are currently questioning him.
The trespasser has been identified as Sagar and he is a resident of Delhi's Lakshmi Nagar. According to eyewitnesses, the man stopped his bike at Gate No 1 and tried to enter inside the Parliament premise with a knife in his hand. He was also shouting slogans in favour of Ram Rahim when security forces detained him and handed him over to Delhi Police.
Ram Rahim is currently lodged at the Sunaria jail in Haryana's Rohtak. He is convicted in two rape cases and in a murder case of a journalist. In July, he had applied for a parole of 42 days to look after his fields in Sirsa. However, he withdrew the application later.
