JAIPUR: In a bizarre incident, an objectionable video clip was played for 30 seconds during a meeting of a food department at the secretariat in Jaipur on Monday. The meeting was chaired by the food secretary and was attended by senior government officers.

Everyone sat stunned as the lewd clip played. The department ordered an inquiry into the matter. Considering the seriousness of the matter, the National Information Centre has been asked to lead the probe.

According to highly placed sources, the video conference was organised by the Food and Supplies Department at the secretariat. The food secretary was discussing various schemes with officials when the lewd clip started playing on the screen.

Even as the technical team rushed to pause the clip, the damage had been done as the officials sat flummoxed and red-faced.

The initial probe has revealed that some privately owned laptops were sourced for the conference.

One of these laptops accidentally started playing the lewd clip and the footage was relayed to the giant screen.

What was especially embarrassing about the entire affair was that several women officials were present when the clip started playing.

Naresh Gupta, senior technical director, NIC, said, “We’ve launched an investigation into the incident. Whoever’s responsible will be found and taken to task.”
