New Delhi, Feb 26: The Delhi Police, probing the alleged assault case of Chief Secretary Anshu Prakash by two Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) MLAs, on Monday said that the CCTV footage obtained from Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal’s home might have been tampered with as there are some discrepancies found in the timing.
A sessions court, hearing the bail plea of jailed MLA Prakash Jarwal, was informed that the arrival of Chief Secretary at CM’s residence was different from the CCTV timings.
The footage has been sent for forensic examination, police said.
