Delhi Police explain discrepancy in timestamp on CCTV footage of Chief Secretary post his alleged assault

Ever since Delhi’s Chief Secretary alleged that he was assaulted by AAP MLA’s at midnight, in the presence of Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal, AAP has been scrambling to put out various defences. AAP spokespersons called the entire issue unbelievable:

Other AAP supporters like Dhruv Rathee, played Sherlock Holmes and raised issues on the time stamp on the CCTV footage, which showed the Chief Secretary leaving the CM’s house. The timestamp showed 11.30 whereas the civil servant had claimed he was assaulted at midnight:

The Delhi police today seemed to have answered this issue. The police today entered the official residence of Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal to examine the CCTV cameras installed in the building.  ADGP North Delhi stated that they had found that the CCTV cameras were running behind time by 40 minutes.

If this statement is to be believed, then the CCTV cameras were showing 11.30, when the actual time was 12.10. This would corroborate with the Chief Secretary’s statements that he was assaulted at midnight, soon after which he left the place.

Proving this “error” in the CCTV cameras settings before a judge may prove to be tougher task. AAP will very well claim that this is a convenient excuse. Further, cameras not showing correct time at the Delhi CM’s official address reflects badly on the authorities responsible for this.
