Arrested RPF constable’s hate speeches established through forensic analysistext_fields
Mumbai: The Government Railway Police (GRP) has confirmed, through forensic analysis, that the voice in various videos, making insidious and hateful speeches targeting Muslims, belongs to Railway Protection Force (RPF) constable Chetan Singh.
Chetan Singh has been apprehended for the cold-blooded murder of four individuals, including his senior officer, on the Jaipur-Mumbai Central Superfast Express on July 31.
GRP investigators utilized forensic techniques to match Singh's voice and appearance with those seen in viral social media videos, which depicted him making "hate comments" post the gruesome murders.
Witnesses, including passengers who recorded the video, revealed that Singh delivered a disturbingly divisive speech after the killings. This prompted the addition of Section 153A to the charges against Singh, signifying the promotion of enmity between different groups.
The tragedy claimed the lives of Assistant Sub-Inspector Tikaram Meena, as well as passengers Abdul Kadar Mohamed Hussain Bhanpurawala, Syed Saifuddin, and Asgar Abbas Sheikh. Police also recorded statements from fellow RPF personnel and train staff.
Singh's defence counsel, Amit Mishra, cited his client's prolonged mental instability, claiming he had suffered an anxiety attack and was undergoing treatment for over a year.
