JNU sedition case: video clips of alleged sedition by Kanhaiya Kumar & co ‘authentic’text_fields
New Delhi: The Central Forensic Science Laboratory (CFSL) has certified four crucial video evidence against Kanhaiya Kumar and 46 others as authentic.
Zee New had aired these videos, accused as doctored, at the time. They were among the 13 video clips the Delhi police cited in the chargesheet filed on January 14.
The chargesheet named Kanhaiya Kumar, Umar Khalid and Anirban Bhattacharya among 47 individuals of the Jawaharlal Nehru University Students' Union (JNUSU) for raising slogans calling for the breaking up of India.
The slogans had allegedly been raised on February 9, 2016, at an event to commemorate the hanging of Afzal Guru, for masterminding the attack on Parliament on December 13, 2001.
Of the 13 video clips, nine were grainy clips shot on mobile phones. The four videos aired by Zee News were the only ones with clear audio and video.
Last week, a Delhi court had criticised the Delhi Police for filing the chargesheet without obtaining the sanction of the Delhi government. The AAP's Delhi government has said it has sought legal advice on the matter.
