Four video clips of the February 9 event at JNU during which anti-national slogans were allegedly raised are “genuine”, according to the final forensic report from the Forensic Science Laboratory in Gandhinagar to Delhi Police Special Cell.
Investigators had received these video clippings from security guards and students and most of them were recorded on mobile phones, said sources.
“From these videos, police have identified five persons raising anti-national slogans during the event held to mark the death anniversary of Parliament attack convict Afzal Guru. Umar Khalid and Anirban Bhattacharya can be seen in these videos,” said a source close to the investigation in the case. Investigators are likely to question persons identified in the four video clippings.
Special Commissioner of Police (Special Cell) Arvind Deep said they had received the report from Gandhinagar, but were waiting for the final report on another set of video clippings — especially those shown on Zee News channel — from the Central Forensic Science Laboratory, CBI.
Incidentally, Truth Labs in Hyderabad had conducted forensic investigation of seven video clips of the event on the orders of the Delhi government and found that three of them were ‘doctored’.
Investigators have so far recorded the statements of 15 people in the case.
