The Delhi police have said that the video clip is apparently doctored which were obtained in regards to the clashes that happened in Ramjas College in February. The video clip was related to the “anti national slogans” including sloganeering at JNU and other incidents footage, which was being raised on the college campus, deputy commissioner of police (crime) Madhur Verma told Http:// e Hindu.
According to ATR i.e. police’s nine-page action taken report which was submitted to a Delhi court and has been signed by the joint commissioner of police (crime) Praveer Rajan, stated:
“The footage is not clear… as the same has been obtained from unknown social network and media websites, and apparently looks doctored. Hence, in order to establish the same, requests have been sent to different electronic media sources to provide un-edited/raw footage of the incident.” He said
Earlier before, on February 22, AISA and ABVP clashed with each other to cancel the seminar titled ‘Cultures of Protest’, where JNU students Umar Khalid and Shehla Rashid were invited to speak on the subject but the ABVP had violently disrupted the event and then subsequently ABVP had filed a complaint accusing students and teachers of raising “anti national slogans”. The police in its ATR has also accused five Delhi University professors of leading the group that allegedly chanted anti-national slogans at Ramjas, the Hindustan Times reported.
The teachers, from the outset, have maintained that they were not involved in any anti-national slogan shouting at Ramjas College.
“I am still trying to ascertain the implications of the initial media reports of the ATR. Reports are conflicting. The named professors are responsible teachers. Their academic worth and commitment are time tested. One hopes the investigation would be unbiased and fair.” Prasanta Chakravarty, who teaches at Delhi University, said
