Jaswant Singh Chail Wiki – Jaswant Singh Chail Biography
Jaswant Singh Chail channelled Darth Vader in a chilling video clip published by the Sun. The intruder who broke into Windsor Castle on Christmas morning, reportedly brandished a crossbow, threatened to “assassinate the Queen,” and professed to be a “Sith” — a member of the Dark Side in “Star Wars.”
He is 19 years old.
Windsor Castle Intruder Video
Chail uploaded a pre-recorded video to Snapchat at 8:06 am on Christmas Day, 24 minutes before police arrested a man inside the grounds of Windsor Castle.
It has sparked a central internal security review at the estate looking at how someone could have got so far into the grounds.
Chail, who was raised in a £500,000 semi-detached house on a private estate in North Baddesley, Southampton, has now been pictured for the first time after his father, Jasbir Singh Chail, told MailOnline something had ‘gone horribly wrong with our son and we are trying to figure out what.’
Mr Chail, 57, added: ‘We’ve not had a chance to speak to him but are trying to get him the help he needs. From our perspective, we are going through a difficult time. We are trying to resolve this issue and it’s not easy.’
Jaswant’s father is a well-spoken, qualified software engineer who runs the company from his home.
Their son is believed to have enjoyed a comfortable, loving upbringing surrounded by his family in the middle-class district where they live, located just north of Southampton.
Known to friends as Jas, he has used a filter to distort his voice and wore a hoodie and mask – an outfit thought to be inspired by Star Wars.
He says: ‘I’m sorry. I’m sorry for what I’ve done and what I will do. I will attempt to assassinate Elizabeth, Queen of the Royal Family. This is revenge for those who have died in the 1919 Jallianwala Bagh massacre.
‘It is also revenge for those who have been killed, humiliated and discriminated against because of their race. I’m an Indian Sikh, a Sith.’
He adds: ‘My name was Jaswant Singh Chail’ then appears to give a Star Wars-themed identity which sounds like ‘Darth Janus.’
Sith appears to be a reference to the leading villains in Star Wars. A framed picture of Star Wars character Darth Malgus was visible in the clip’s background.
The suspect, who the police have not yet named, was arrested shortly after 8.30 am yesterday after he was spotted on CCTV roaming the gardens after scaling an outer wall. He was later sectioned under the Mental Health Act.
Scotland Yard said detectives were examining the footage posted on social media before the Christmas Day incident at the Queen’s Berkshire home.
Police confirmed a crossbow was found after the intruder was detained in the castle grounds while the Queen was in residence.
There is no indication the intruder, who has not been named, was known for making threats to any members of the Royal Family before this week.
And sources say that once he had gained access to the royal estate, the teenager ‘didn’t know what to do with himself and was quickly arrested.
But the incident is being taken extremely seriously. The Metropolitan Police is investigating and has informed the Home Office.
A Scotland Yard spokesman said: ‘Following the man’s arrest, detectives are assessing the contents of a video.’
