The father of a teenager suspected of scaling Windsor Castle armed with a crossbow in a bid to ‘assassinate the Queen in revenge for 1919 Amritsar massacre’ today told MailOnline something had gone ‘horribly wrong with his son.’

A shocking video of the crossbow-wielding male emerged after the spiked fencing around the castle was broken up by a 19-year old.

It shows the arrest suspect using a black crossbow, and a distortion of his voice to threaten the camera.

Jaswant Sing Chail uploaded this prerecorded clip to Snapchat on Christmas Day at 8:06 AM. This was 24 minutes after a man in Windsor Castle had been arrested.

Jaswant’s father, Jasbir Singh Chail told MailOnline: ‘Something’s gone horribly wrong with our son and we are trying to figure out what.

‘We’ve not had a chance to speak to him but are trying to get him the help he needs. We are experiencing a very difficult time from our point of view. We are trying to resolve this issue and it’s not easy.’

Jaswant Chail was raised in a £500,000 semi-detached house located on a private estate in North Baddesley, Southampton.

Jasbir Singh, his father (57) and mother (51) are listed as directors of an IT company. His 19-year-old sister is still living at the home.

Jaswant’s father is a well-spoken, qualified software engineer who runs the company from his home.

It is thought that their son was raised in a loving, comfortable home with his family near Southampton.

Known to friends as Jas, he is said to have used a filter to distort his voice and wore a hoodie and mask – an outfit thought to be inspired by Star Wars

“I am sorry,” he said. It’s my sincere regret for all that I have done. I promise to do the same. I’ll attempt to assassinate Elizabeth the Queen of Royal Family. It is revenge on those who died in 1919 Jallianwala bagh massacre.

It’s also an act of revenge against those who have been humiliated or killed because of their race. Ich bin an Indian Sikh and a Sith. Jaswant Singh Chail was my name, and Darth Jones is mine.

What was the 1919 Amritsar massacre, also known as the Jallianwala Bagh massacre?

The Amritsar massacre, otherwise known as the Jallianwala Bagh massacre, took place on April 13, 1919, during a protest against the arrest of two pro-Indian independence leaders.

It was held in Jallianwala bagh (a historical garden) near Amritsar’s Golden Temple complex.  

The Brigadier-General R. E. H. Dyer surrounded protesters as a response and they had only one exit from the Bagh. 

His troops were then instructed to kill all demonstrators. 

He ordered his troops to stop firing after exhausting their ammunition.

The death toll is estimated at between 379-plus and over 1500. 

Another 1200 were also injured. Among them, 192 sustained severe injuries. 

After the massacre, British Army forces were evaluated and troops trained to use less forceful methods for crowd control. 

However, it led to the complete distrust of the British Army among Indian civilians. Some historians believe that this helped open the door for Indian independence. 

Sith could refer to Star Wars’ leading villains, while Darth Jones might be an ode to James Earl Jones (who voiced Darth Vader). The background clip featured a frame picture of Star Wars’ Darth Malgus.

British forces killed 1,200 and 379 of the protesters were wounded in Jallianwala Bagh, which was also called Massacre of Amritsar.

Alongside the video a message was also sent on Snapchat which said: ‘I’m sorry to all of those who I have wronged or lied to.

‘If you have received this then my death is near. Please share this with whoever and if possible get it to the news if they’re interested.’

After being spotted by CCTV in the gardens, the suspect was taken into custody shortly before 8.30 am yesterday. The Mental Health Act later sectioned him.

Scotland Yard said detectives were examining the footage which was posted on social media before the Christmas Day incident at the Queen’s Berkshire home.               

The Queen, while in her home, was being detained by police and a suspect was later taken to the Castle grounds. Police then confirmed the discovery of a crossbow. 

The intruder has been identified as an unknown individual. He is known to have threatened any Royal Family member before the 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.

It is evident that this incident is being treated seriously. Metropolitan Police are investigating the matter and have informed Home Office.

A Scotland Yard spokesman said: ‘Following the man’s arrest, detectives are assessing the contents of a video.’ 

Crossbows are often referred to as ‘lethal but legal’ because they require no licence or registration and can be bought on the internet with ease.

Police confirmed a crossbow was found after the intruder was detained in the castle grounds while the Queen (pictured delivering the annual Christmas Day speech) was in residence

The police have confirmed the discovery of a crossbow after an intruder was held in the castle grounds. While the Queen was present, the Queen delivered the annual Christmas Day speech. 

Yesterday, police raided the Southampton home of the suspect and his family.

One neighbour told The Sun: ‘There was a big commotion with all the police around and it caused some concern, especially as it was Christmas Day.

‘The family keep themselves to themselves, like the rest of the estate, but we know there’s a teenage lad who lives there with his mum and dad. The police didn’t leave the estate until late at night.’  

Police will be looking at how the intruder was able to scale the spiked perimeter fence surrounding the Berkshire castle’s grounds in the first place. 

It is believed he had a makeshift ladder to gain access from the Long Walk, which royals frequently use because of its proximity to the Queen’s private apartments.

Members of the public can access The Long Walk in a parkland area.

It is expected that a significant internal security audit will be conducted, especially after a string of security concerns on Windsor Great Park estate, including Prince Andrew.

Senior royals such as the Duke and Duchess Of Cambridge and the Duchess Cornwall expressed concern following the removal of some of their most trusted bodyguards in security measures.

Sources said that even the Queen privately expressed concern over the changes made to her protection, as well as those of her family.

Security concerns arose after the suspect in possession of the crossbow was located at 8.30 o’clock on Christmas Day. The Queen will have been there without her family.

In a matter of hours, she was joined immediately by senior royals such as the Prince of Wales and Duchess Cornwall.

Retired chief superintendent Dai Davies, the former head of royal protection at Scotland Yard, said the incident again highlighted the ‘very serious threat‘ that ‘fixated people and stalkers’ pose.

He said: ‘Since the time of George III, 99 per cent of attacks against members of the Royal Family have involved a fixated person, or stalker. I am actually scared to hear that the crossbow was used. The windscreen will be used to protect them.

‘And in all my years of crime and catching criminals, it is rare for crossbows to be used for criminal purposes. Anyone knowing the royals were in residence and having a fair idea of their comings and goings, could pose a very real and potentially tragic threat with something like that.’

But he cautioned: ‘It is always a balance between public accessibility to the Royal Family and their ability to live even the semblance of a normal life, with their safety. You can’t turn these royal residence into prisons. Royalty protection is like an onion.

‘There are layers. He would have faced many other hurdles before even getting near any member of the Royal Family. Evidently, he was captured on CCTV and arrested as soon as possible. Troubling as the incident is, in this case the security worked.’

In a statement the Metropolitan Police said: ‘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.

‘Security processes were triggered within moments of the man entering the grounds and he did not enter any buildings.

‘Following a search of the man, a crossbow was recovered. He was immediately taken into custody. The Mental Health Act has now been used to section the man.

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

Sources claim that security at Windsor Castle was increased in recent years. A review was carried out in 2003 after self-styled comedy terrorist Aaron Barschak broke in during Prince William’s 21st birthday party.

A major internal security review will be initiated as a matter of course, particularly as it follows a series of security scares on the Windsor Great Park estate involving Prince Andrew

As a matter of routine, a major internal security assessment will be conducted. This is especially after a string of security incidents at Windsor Great Park that involved Prince Andrew.

Prince William’s 21st-birthday party was gatecrashed and dominated by the ‘Comedy Terrorist’ 

The suspected security breach at Windsor Castle is not here.

Aaron Barschak was self-described “comedy terrorist” and gained national fame when he crashed Prince William’s birthday party at Windsor.

Barschak donned a pink dress with false hair and a turban that looked like Osama bin Laden during the affair.

In June 2003, self-styled ‘comedy terrorist’ Aaron Barschak came to national fame by gatecrashing William’s 21st birthday party at Windsor. During the affair, Barschak wore a pink dress, a false beard and a turban in a fashion similar to Osama bin Laden

Aaron Barschak, a self-described ‘comedy terror’ gained national fame when he crashed William’s 21st Birthday party at Windsor in June 2003. Barschak was dressed in a pink dress with a fake beard and had a turban that looked like Osama bin Laden.

After flashing his merkin outside at the crowds, he scaled walls of castle to enter young prince’s party.

Sources told The Guardian at the time that CPS lawyers decided there was ‘insufficient evidence’ to charge Barschak for one or more of four offences – burglary, threatening behaviour, criminal trespass and assault.

The ‘comedy terror’ claimed that his act had made him famous, even though he was not facing any legal action.

He said that he doesn’t talk to his friends any more in an interview with LBC News. You’re too well-known for them. It’s quite a strain to have people walk up to me on the streets.

After learning he would face no action, the ‘comedy terrorist’ claimed his stunt had brought him celebrity status

Barschak stated that he had been challenged after breaking into the ground. He was then taken to a police station, where he gave what was described by the Met Police as a credible story.

At most nine officers of the police force were subject to disciplinary review over this incident. 

Chief Inspector Mark Goddard was a high ranking officer responsible for security at Windsor. He was removed from his post.
