According to media reports, intimated moments of couple in the train and metro stations were captured in the videos. Total 13 videos have been uploaded on porn sites so far and these have been viewed by nearly 1.5 lakh people.
Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) and DMRC earlier had begun a blame game. The CCTV camera footage are accessed only by these two agencies.
CISF Director General Rajiv was quoted as saying, "We are just the monitoring agency. DMRC controls the database into which this CCTV footage goes, and so the leak most likely happened at its end."
