In the video broadcast on the English news channel, the lawyers can be seen claiming that they thrashed Kanhaiya for around three hours while he was in police custody and said he wet his pants during the beating.

They can be seen claiming to have spared Kanhaiya only after they made him raise a specific slogan praising India. One of them can even be seen claiming that he would not sign a bail bond only to land in jail so that he could beat up Kanhaiya again inside the jail. He went on to say that they had full support of police during the scuffle in the court premises.

Senior police officials have so far refused to comment on the video without verification. Police had issued notices to lawyers Vikram Singh Chauhan, Yashpal Singh and Om Sharma to join the investigation, following which Om Sharma presented himself before police and was arrested. But the two others are yet to appear.
