JNU row: Delhi govt contemplating defamation case against TV channels
New Delhi, Mar 3: The Delhi government which has been opposing the view of the police in connection with the JNU incident is planning on initiating a series of measures which it terms as course correction.
One among the many decisions that the Delhi government has taken is to sue some television channels on the allegation that they ran doctored videos.
The Delhi government had instituted a probe of its own at the Magistrate level to get into the details of the incident.
Among the many findings one of them was that a television channel had been taken to the JNU campus ahead of the February 9th event in which anti national slogans had allegedly been raised.
The Delhi government feels that the videos were tampered with. They are now planning on filing a criminal defamation case against some television channels.
Further the government of Delhi had also sent some of the videos to the forensic sciences laboratory to verify the authenticity of the clips. The result was that two videos had allegedly been tampered with.
Even during the hearing at the Delhi High Court, the Delhi government had doubted the validity of the sedition charge filed against Kanhaiya Kumar.
In its submission the counsel for the Delhi government had also said that no innocent should be in jail.
