NEW DELHI: Raw footage grab by a Hindi News channel on February 9th at the Jawaharlal Nehru University campus has been found to authentic by the CBI forensic lab the Central Forensic Science Laboratory (CFSL), the Delhi police informed on Saturday.

On the basis of the footage a case of sedition was registered against Jawaharlal Nehru University Student Union (JNUSU) President Kanhaiya Kumar and Umar Khalid and Anirban Bhattacharya.

Earlier the Delhi police sent four videos taken by mobile phone to Gandhinagar based CFSL for authentication, which also were found to be genuine.  "The CBI lab sent a report to Delhi Police's Special Cell on June 8 saying the raw footage was authentic," a police source said. Special Commissioner of Police (Special Cell) Arvind Deep confirmed the receipt of report but did not divulge the details.

However, a Delhi government-ordered probe, into a set of seven video clippings of the controversial event sent to the Hyderabad-based Truth Labs, had found two clips to be manipulated while others as genuine.

Police, however, maintained that the FIR into the matter was registered on the basis of the raw video footage, obtained from a news channel on a CD, and not on the clippings which were aired on TV channels.

In the FIR, police had claimed that in the video a group of students, led by JNU student Umar Khalid, could be seen raising anti-India slogans, 21 of which were mentioned in an interim report filed a few days later into the case.
