The suspect who entered Windsor Castle with a bow in 2021 and threatened to kill the late British Queen Elizabeth II has pleaded guilty before the court.

A case of treason was registered against 21-year-old accused Jaswant Singh from Hampshire.

Jaswant Singh is the first person to be convicted of treason in Britain since 1981.

The suspect also admitted making threats to kill at Windsor Castle and possessing weapons at the Old Bailey.

On 25 December 2021, Jaswant Singh entered Windsor Castle through a rope ladder and stayed there for 2 hours.

At that time, Queen Elizabeth II was staying at Windsor Castle due to the Covid epidemic.

Jaswant Singh said ‘I’m here to kill the Queen’ when questioned by staff inside Windsor Castle.

On this, the security instructed Jaswant Singh to sit on his knees with his bow, the accused followed the instructions and once again expressed his intention to kill the queen.

Before breaking into Windsor Castle, the accused had also posted a video on social media in which he said he wanted to take revenge for the Jallianwala Bagh massacre of 1919.

The United Kingdom’s 1842 Treason Act makes it an offense to assault the Queen, carry a weapon with intent to injure her in her residence, or threaten to do so.

Jaswant Singh’s crime will be sentenced by the court on March 31.

The last time in 1981, Marcus Sergeant was sentenced to 5 years in prison under the Treason Act for firing blank shots at the Queen.
