While it was revealed that arrested accused in the Parliament security breach, Manoranjan, and Sai Krishna were roommates, it's yet to be ascertained whether they were classmates during their days as engineering students in Bengaluru.  

Krishna’s name emerged during the ongoing probe when Manoranjan’s diary was inspected. It suggested a potential connection between them.
