No group has so far claimed responsibility for the terrorist attack on Parliament House. Talking to the media, various federal ministers said they were unaware of the terrorists' identity.
At the time of the attack, President K R Narayanan, who was inaugurating the fourth SAARC
Writers' Conference at India International Centre, New Delhi,
hurriedly gave away the awards to distinguished writers after
one of his aides whispered in his ear, apparently
informing him of the developments in Parliament House.
Soon after Narayanan left the venue, one of the organisers
announced that the President had to leave following "an
emergency in Parliament."
Union Minister for Culture and Tourism Jagmohan and
former prime ministers I K Gujral and V P Singh, who were also
present, left the venue with Narayanan.
