NEW DELHI: A delegation of CPI(M)-JD(U) leaders today called on Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and asked him to take action against organisations which had allegedly used doctored videos "to create frenzy of anti-nationals" at JNU.

A forensic probe ordered by Delhi government on certain footages of the February 9 JNU event, in which anti-national slogans were allegedly raised, found that two of the videos were "manipulated" where voices of persons not present in the clips were added.

The delegation thanked Kejriwal for the probe and sought action against the organisations concerned based on the findings of enquiry into the clips, CPI(M) general secretary Sitaram Yechury said.

"We went to thank him for organising magisterial enquiry which has clearly shown the tapes were doctored. Secondly, on the basis of his (Kejriwal's) own enquiry that the tapes were doctored, they should now proceed for action against the organisations that used these doctored tapes to create this sort of a frenzy of anti-national against JNU as a whole and against the students," Yechury said after the meeting.

He said Kejriwal assured the delegation of action into the  matter. "He (Kejriwal) said notices have already been served to some media houses which have done this mischief," Yechury said. Besides Yechury, JD(U) MP K C Tyagi was part of the delegation that met Kejriwal.
