TV footage played in court

NEW DELHI, MAY 24 . In a rare event, a television footage was played in a Delhi court today showing a demonstration in which RJD leader and Bihar Chief Minister's brother Sadhu Yadav and his supporters allegedly attacked some JNU students outside New Bihar Bhavan here in 1997.

The coverage of the demonstration on March 31, 1997 recorded by television channel `Aaj Tak' was played in the court of Additional Sessions Judge, R K Jain, in the presence of accused Anirudh Prasad Yadav alias Sadhu Yadav, elected to the Lok Sabha from Gopalganj constituency.

The court recorded the testimony of Aaj Tak's News Director Qamar Waheed Naqvi, who confirmed Sadhu Yadav's presence on the tape and asserted the recording was not manipulated or tampered with.

Sadhu Yadav and others are accused by the CBI of attempt to murder, rioting and causing hurt. About 2,000 students had gheraoed the Bihar Bhavan protesting the murder of JNU student leader Chandrashekhar at Siwan in Bihar in which Rashtriya Janata Dal MP Shahabuddin is a prime accused. -- PTI
