GURGAON : The Gurgaon Police,was unable to retrieve footage from the hard disk of digital video recorder (DVR) connected to six CCTV cameras as it turned out to be corrupt the police said on Friday.

The footage was a crucial evidence in the probe of the alleged gang rape of two Nepalese women at a Saudi diplomat's residence, finding out who all “visited” the diplomat in his apartment during the time these women were raped and tortured.  

The hard disk was sent to the state's only Forensic Science Laboratory in Madhubani, where the Haryana Police Academy is located, said a senior Gurgaon Police official.

Police had taken the DVR into its custody when they rescued the two Nepalese girls and handed it over to a special team, working on retrieving data crucial to the case. The team, however, failed to do so despite putting efforts for several hours, as it was corrupt, the official said.

“After examining the footage the police was to prepare a report, so that it can be used for the further investigations” the official said.

Meanwhile, two days after submitting its report to the MEA in connection with the alleged gang rape of two Nepalese women in the apartment of a Saudi diplomat in Gurgaon, the police today had to post a series of clarifications countering "allegations" and "attribution of unverified facts" by several Twitter handles.

The battle over micro blogging site Twitter started with the Gurgaon Police's official Twitter handle confronting allegations regarding sudden leave sanctioned to Commissioner Navdeep Singh Virk and the speculations entailing them.

Gurgaon Police later clarified that the leave sanctioned to the police commissioner had nothing to do with the case.
