GURGAON: Gurgaon Police have managed to recover substantial amount of video grabs from the digital video recorder of CCTV cameras outside the Saudi diplomat's residence where two Nepalese women were allegedly raped, police said today.

The hard disk was earlier found to have gone corrupt.          

 Several persons are visible in the CCTV grabs and only the victims can identify whether any of them had allegedly sexually assaulted them, said a police official.       

However, the victims left the country on September 10, only after Gurgaon Police reportedly said that they were not needed to be physically present here for the probe.   

The DVR was yesterday sent to the state's only Forensic Science Laboratory in Madhubani, where the Haryana Police Academy is located, said a senior 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 the hard disk turned out to be corrupt.    

Later, the task was assigned to a private enterprise. When the private enterprise failed, the cops opted for the Madhubani FSL.          

The DVR was connected to around six functional CCTV cameras which covered the entry, exit and other crucial spots outside the diplomat's apartment.   The police was to prepare a report after monitoring the CCTV footage and share it with the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA), if the ministry had asked for it, the official added.
