Delhi CS assault case: Delhi police deny media reports on tampering of CCTVs
The Delhi police denied media reports on tampering of CCTVs seized from Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal's residence in connection with assault case of Chief Secretary Anshu Prakash by two Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) MLAs.
Harendra K Singh, Additional DCP, North, said, "Sections of media saying Police said in court that CCTVs tampered with. It's factually wrong and irresponsible. Today, defence counsel stated that police must prove that tampering has been done."
He said, "It was informed to a court that site visit reveals discrepancies in the timing. Only Forensic Science Laboratory will be able to tell if any tampering has been done. Please don't quote police with factually wrong information."
Earlier, it was widely reported in media that the Delhi Police, probing the alleged assault case of Chief Secretary, claimed discrepancies in the timing in the CCTV footage obtained from Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal's residence. The hearing in the case is underway in a Delhi court. The defence, however, said the Delhi Police doesn't have any proof of tampering. The court has reserved the case for tomorrow. The Forensic Science Laboratory will examine the footage.
The court has reserved its order till Tuesday.
