The news of the attempted murder of Queen Elizabeth II at Christmas, in the case, on Saturday (25/12), took the subjects by surprise. In the quest to find out who wanted to kill the monarch, the British newspaper The Mirror gave a name and a face to the person responsible for scaling the walls of Windsor Castle, armed with a bow and arrow. According to the tabloid, the 19-year-old man is called Jaswant Singh Chail.

As published by the tabloid, there was a post of a video in which a hooded person appears threatening to kill the 95-year-old sovereign. In the recording, the individual appears in a white mask and black coat, and says: “I’m sorry for what I did and what I will do”. He adds: “I will try to assassinate Elizabeth, the queen of the royal family.”


Less than 30 minutes after the video was shared on Snapchat, a 19-year-old man armed with a bow and arrow was arrested inside the palace where the British monarch spent Christmas, namely Windsor Castle in England. At the scene, Elizabeth was accompanied by her son and daughter-in-law, Prince Charles and Camilla Parker, respectively.

According to The Mirror, Scotland Yard has been examining the images from security cameras and, this Tuesday (28/12), the police were seen at Chail’s family home. The young man’s father, Jasbir Singh Chail reports that Jaswant is not doing well: “Something has gone terribly wrong with our son and we are trying to find out what. We didn’t have a chance to talk to him, but we’re trying to get the help he needs.”

Police have yet to reveal the identity of whoever tried to kill Queen Elizabeth II, although The Mirror slammed the hammer and showed Jaswant’s face in a report. The young man scaled the walls of Windsor Castle with a rope ladder and even walked through the gardens of the royal estate before being seen by collaborators.

The suspect of trying to assassinate the British monarch was arrested around 8:30 am in England, being 5:30 am Brasília time. According to the newspaper, the young man is being held on suspicion of trespassing on private property and possession of an offensive weapon. Then they brought him under the Mental Health Act.

In the video shared on Snapchat, the hooded figure revealed that the planned attack would be “revenge” for a historic massacre, when at least 379 pro-independence Indian protesters were killed by British armed forces in Jallianwala in 1919. “This is revenge to those who died in the massacre at Jallianwala Bagh in 1919.”
