Parts of the mobile phones belonging to five accused in the Parliament security breach case have been recovered from Rajasthan,  Delhi Police sources said.

All the phones, which the alleged ‘mastermind’ Lalit Mohan Jha had taken hold of, were found in burnt condition,  sources added.

Police have added IPC sections related to destruction of evidence to the FIR against the accused, news agency PTI reported.

Delhi police sources earlier revealed that Lalit Jha had destroyed five mobile phones before coming to Delhi and was misleading the investigating team. According to the Delhi police, Lalit Jha destroyed not four but five mobile phones after fleeing to Rajasthan’s Kuchaman, said the police sources.

Investigation has revealed that Lalit first destroyed the phones of the four accused and before coming to Delhi he destroyed his own phone also. According to the sources, Lalit was continuously misleading the investigation team, ANI reported citing the police sources.

The investigation team has written a letter to the cellular company seeking information about Lalit and the remaining four accused.
