Another thing that has come to light during the turn of events is that one of the tampered videos was sourced from Shilpi Tiwari who is considered a close aide of Smriti Irani. She was the campaign manager of Irani during the Lok Sabha election when the HRD minister was contesting from Amethi.
According to another media report, being a close aide of Irani, she was appointed as her consultant at the salary of Rs 35,000 per month. “Abrupt changes were found in the pitch and the intensity contours….indicating that the recording is not authentic,” the forensic report claims.
The first video was named as Q1 and titled as ‘Kanhaiya caught shouting anti-India slogans.’ This clip reportedly came from YouTue and was later used by several news channels.
This, the channels had said provided clinching proof of Kanhaiya’s involvement in anti-national sloganeering.
Second video, named as Q2, according to India Today, was picked up from a URL address ‘shilpitewari.’
The meeting note below is now being widely shared on twitter in the wake of new revelation of Tewari’s alleged involvement in doctoring Kanhaiya video.
In its conclusion, the forensic report has said that ‘abrupt changes were found in the pitch and the intensity contours….indicating that the recording is not authentic.”
Indian Express reported that three out of the seven video clips of the alleged ‘anti-national’ sloganeering in Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) on 9 February, examined by the Delhi government, had been found to be ‘doctored.
The video samples were sent by the Delhi government to Truth Lab in Hyderabad. On 13 February, the Aam Aadmi Party government in Delhi had ordered the District Magistrate in the capital to file a factual report about the incident, following conflicting claims of different parties shouting allegedly anti-national slogans on the JNU campus.
Tiwari has since then deleted her twitter account and gone underground.
