NEW DELHI: The raw video footage of the controversial February 9 event at the Jawaharlal Nehru University, based on which a sedition case was registered against the university’s students’ union president Kanhaiya Kumar and two others, has been found to be “authentic” by the CBI forensic lab, the police has claimed.
The raw footage of the event, obtained from a Hindi news channel, was sent to the CBI forensic lab in New Delhi for examination along with camera, memory card, a CD containing the clip, wires and other equipment, they said.
“The CBI lab sent a report to Delhi Police’s Special Cell on June 8 saying the raw footage was authentic,” a police source said.
Special Commissioner of Police (Special Cell) Arvind Deep confirmed the receipt of report but did not divulge the details.
Earlier, Delhi Police had sent four video clips of the event to Gandhinagar-based Central Forensic Science Laboratory (CFSL) which in its report, in May, had said that they were genuine.
