The teenager believed to be the man who stormed Windsor Castle with a crossbow on December 25 has been unmasked.

Jaswant Singh Chail was sectioned under the Mental Health Act after shocking footage of a masked man threatening to kill our head of state emerged.

The 19-year-old's dad has spoken out about his fears for the teen and says he's utterly baffled with the events of recent days.

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.

"From our perspective, we are going through a difficult time. We are trying to resolve this issue and it’s not easy."

The teen is believed to have recorded and sent a clip of himself on Snapchat 23 minutes before armed officers took him down on Saturday.

Jaswant is thought to have grown up in a £500,000 semi-detached home in a private estate and there are now fears for his state of mind.

He was just 500 metres from the Queen's private rooms when police found him inside the grounds of Windsor Castle.

The suspect is believed to have scaled a spiked fence using a rope ladder before he was apprehended and taken for medical attention.

The video he allegedly sent on Snapchat chilled the nation. In the video a masked man 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 on because of their race. I'm an Indian Sikh, a Sith."

The massacre referred to saw around 1,000 people protesting the arrest of Indian independence leaders Dr Saifuddin Kitchlew and Dr Satya Pal killed by British army soldiers.

The video was posted with a message on Snapchat where the user apologises to ”all of those who I have wronged or lied to”.

The masked man added: “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.”

Scotland Yard has confirmed that they are “examining the footage”, and police did confirm that a crossbow was found when the man was arrested on the castle grounds on Christmas Day.
