New Delhi, Mar 24: The Delhi police is miffed over the delay in getting the forensic sciences laboratory report with regard to the video clips shot at the JNU. The investigations have come to a standstill and thanks to this bail has been granted to the accused, police sources say.
For the probe to proceed, it is extremely important for us to get the report from the Central Forensic Sciences Laboratory say the Delhi police. The police have also written a letter to the CFSL quoting the delay while also stating that the investigations are pending due to this.
The video clips form a very important part of the evidence in the probe.
If ascertained that the video clips have not been tampered with then it would prove that anti national slogans had indeed been raised by the likes of Kanaihya Kumar, Anirban Bhattacharya and Umar Khalid.
During the pendency of the CFSL report, the Delhi government decided to undertake a test at the Truth Lab in Hyderabad.
However, this report cannot be placed before a court as it is not under the government. The Truth Lab does not have the power to summon for the original file from the police.
The police and the court rely only on the reports by the CFSL which is under the Ministry for Home Affairs.
