LG represents Delhi Govt, not CM: Court told in JNU video case

Press Trust of India  |  New Delhi 

Lt Gov Najeeb Jung and not Chief Minister Kejriwal heads the government, a scribe today told a here seeking dismissal of a complaint lodged by the AAP dispensation against him and others in the JNU video row.

Seeking dismissal of AAP government's complaint demanding action against him and others for airing allegedly doctored videos of a controversial event at Jawaharlal Nehru University in February, the scribe's counsel cited a High judgement on powers of the government and the Lieutenant Governor.



"This complaint was filed on behalf of Chief Minister office and not the office. Therefore, the complaint is not valid and it should be dismissed," the counsel appearing for the scribe said.

Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Sumit Dass, after hearing the arguments, posted the matter for November 8.

During the hearing, advocate Vijay Aggarwal, appearing for the editor of a news channel, arrayed as accused in the complaint with others, said the present complaint claims that the news channel had aired a programme in which it was shown that anti-India slogans were chanted.

"However, the complaint claims that the video aired by the news channel was doctored. But the status report submitted by the Police claims that the video was genuine," the counsel argued.

Senior advocate N Hariharan, appearing for complainant, told the that the present case was related to a separate video.

"The present case is not related to the video on basis of which the FIR in JNU sedition case was registered. This case is related to the videos which were aired (on the news channels) on subsequent dates. Those were doctored and added to the people's ire," the counsel said.

The complaint has sought prosecution of the news channels for allegedly showing doctored videos relating to the event held in the JNU campus on February 9 where anti-India slogans were allegedly raised.
