Kanhaiya Kumar’s JNU row video authentic, says Central Forensic Science Laboratory

New Delhi: In a recent development to the Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) row, the forensic examination of the video clip, on the basis of which JNU student leaders including Kanhaiya Kumar and Umar Khalid were charged with sedition last February, has been termed authentic by the Central Forensic Science Laboratory. 
The footage of the controversial video of a JNU event that emerged on February 9, created a lot of uproar in the country. The video, captured by a Hindi news channel, was later sent for forensic examination by the police to the Central Forensic Science Laboratory.
A source in the Delhi Police Special Cell informed, “We received the report on June 8 which established the authenticity of the footage.”
The CD containing the raw footage was received by Delhi Police on February 11 by the news channel. 
The FIR, that was sent to the CFSL in February, said, “When it was played, the video showed that under the leadership of Umar Khalid, the members of the gathering have been raising ‘anti-national’ slogans such as ‘Kitne Afzal maaroge, ghar ghar se Afzal niklenge’ and ‘Pakistan Zindabad'."
There were several controversies regarding the authenticity of the footage as there were allegations that the video was doctored. A magisterial inquiry had in fact found that the clips that were aired in several channels were doctored. 
However, the police had maintained that their case was based on the unedited footage rather than what the channels had aired.

Kanhaiya Kumar’s JNU row video authentic, says Central Forensic

Either you have news as to which of the various video clips played by your channel and other channels have been held by the CFSL as authentic and who is found to be saying what in that video. Have Kanhaiya Kumar or Umar Khalid been found shouting slogans attributed to them by your channel and few others been authenticated. Dont talk about "the" video. It amounts to motivated fudging, sensationalizing and targeting individuals. Are you a news channel and then present with honesty and clarity. Surely, you are aware of the work done by India Today TV which was specific showing hwich video clips were tampered and which ones were not.
