Terrorists entered Parliament through the main gate

Contrary to reports that the terrorists involved in Thursday's attack on Parliament entered the complex through the Vijay Chowk gate, images captured on the close circuit television reveal that they entered through the main gate from the Parliament Street side.

In a blow-by-blow account captured on the close circuit television of Parliament, the white Ambassador car with a red light, bearing number DL3CJ 1527, is seen entering the complex from the Parliament Street side.

It then speeds towards gate number 12, used by the members of Rajya Sabha, where J P Yadav, security assistant of the watch and ward staff, signals it to stop. With the driver showing no signs of slowing down, Yadav flashes an alert message on his walkie-talkie.

Seconds later, the terrorists shoot Yadav down from the moving car.

[Having received Yadav's message and seen the car speeding through the main gate, at 11.42 am Joint Secretary (Security) Maheepati ordered closure of all gates of the Parliament House building.]

The terrorists stop the car near Gate 11, which is used by the vice-president.

One of them rushes towards the main gate throwing grenades and ultimately blows himself up in the porch.

The other terrorists move towards gate nos 10, 9 and 8. Exchange of fire takes place between gate 11 and 8 and four Delhi police personnel and one gardener are shot dead by the militants.

Having heard the gun shots, security personnel open fire from the Vijay Chowk-side gate. Militants return fire, killing one Central Reserve Police Force woman constable.

Terrorists face stiff resistance from the security forces at Gate No 9 and three of them are taken out by CRPF jawans.

The fifth terrorist runs towards gate no 5 hurling grenades and is shot dead by CRPF personnel.
