LONDON ( Reuters) – A gunman tried to break into the Queen’s Royal Palace in Wanderers Castle during a Christmas party, but the gunman, an Indian national, was arrested.
According to the international news agency, progress has been made in the investigation of the armed man who entered the palace during the Christmas celebrations with the intention of killing the Queen of Britain.
British police have included in a video of a young man posing as a Sikh and an Indian citizen, saying he wanted to avenge the massacre of Sikhs in India during the British rule in 1919.
The video went viral on social media platform Snapchat 24 minutes after the 19-year-old gunman was arrested at the Queen’s Palace. Police have sent the arrested accused to a mental health center.
It is believed that the Queen was attending a prayer service with her family at the Royal Castle of Windsor on Christmas Eve when a 19-year-old armed man tried to enter.
Security forces detained the armed youth from the grounds of the royal fort. The Queen spent most of her time in isolation from the palace during the plague.
The arrest of the gunman had no effect on the Christmas prayer service.
