Queen Elizabeth’s Foiled Crossbow Assassin Talks of ‘Revenge’ in Disturbing Video

A video has emerged showing the man who allegedly trespassed on Windsor Castle grounds armed with a crossbow detailing his plans to « assassinate the Queen » on Christmas Day.

The clip, obtained by The Sun, is believed to show 19-year-old Jaswant Singh Chail with his face covered, wearing a hood and pointing at a black crossbow.

A distorted voice says that he is « sorry for what I’ve done and what I will do » and that he will « attempt to assassinate Elizabeth, Queen of the royal family. »

The man in the footage posted onto Snapchat on Christmas morning said the assassination plot was « revenge » for those who died in the Jallianwala Bagh massacre.

The incident, also known as the Amritsar Massacre, occurred in April 1919. It saw British troops fire on a large crowd of unarmed Indians in the Punjab region.

The crowd at the Jallianwala Bagh public gardens contained people protesting against war taxes and the forced conscription of Indian soldiers, as well as those celebrating the Baisakhi festival.

At least 379 people were killed and more than 1,200 injured during the shooting. In 2019, then-British Prime Minister Theresa May described the massacre as a « shameful scar on British Indian history. »

Elsewhere in the video, the man with the crossbow said his plot against the Queen was « also revenge for those who have been killed, humiliated and discriminated on because of their race.

« I’m an Indian Sikh, a Sith. My name was Jaswant Singh Chail, my name is Darth Jones, » he added.

In the Star Wars franchise, Siths are the enemies of the Jedi Order who have embraced the dark side of the Force, such as main villain Darth Vader.

In the video, a framed picture of obscure Sith lord Darth Malgus can be seen in the background.

A spokesperson for London’s Metropolitan Police Force told Newsweek that they are assessing the contents of the video but are not prepared to discuss the matter further.

The department previously confirmed that a 19-year-old man from Southampton was arrested on suspicion of breach or trespass of a protected site and possession of an offensive weapon after a suspect was found within the grounds of the Queen’s residence on December 25.

Police said security processes were triggered within moments of the man stepping on the grounds and he did not enter any buildings.

« The man was taken into custody and has undergone a mental health assessment—the has since been sectioned under the Mental Health Act and remains in the care of medical professionals, » Met Police said in a statement.

« Enquiries into the full circumstances of this incident are being progressed by Metropolitan Police Specialist Operations. »
