JNU row: Forensic test reveals 2 out of 7 videos were 'doctored'

New Delhi: A forensic test ordered by the Delhi government has revealed that two of the seven videos in the controversial event on Afzal Guru in JNU were doctored.

The Arvind Kejriwal led-government had sent seven videos, aired by some news channels, allegedly showing anti-national sloganeering at JNU to Hyderabad-based Truth Labs for probe.

The laboratory in its report stated that at least two of the seven video were “manipulated”.

According to the findings, the videos have been massively edited. While audio has been separately recorded and superimposed on one video, the other video is patchy and has several cuts in between.

Several videos allegedly showing raising of anti-India slogans have surfaced since the JNU row broke out at the varsity campus. The videos have triggered wide-spread protests across the country and have led to the arrest of JNUSU president Kanhiya Kumar on the charges of sedition.

Meanwhile, JNU students Umar Khalid and Anirban Bhattacharya were sent to 14 days judicial custody by a Delhi court on Tuesday.
