A day after lodging an FIR against unknown persons for allegedly misusing a video of a cabinet meeting chaired by the Prime Minister by “superimposing” audio over it, the Delhi Police Cyber Cell has said that the doctored video originated from a Pakistan-based server. Police say the video was meant to promote enmity between groups.

The Cyber Cell said it came across the video, which shows the Prime Minister and Home Minister in a meeting with other ministers, during social media monitoring. The audio, though, is of someone passing “objectionable remarks against Punjabis”, and police say it has no connection with the meeting and has been superimposed on the video.

DCP (Cyber Cell) KPS Malhotra said, “We analysed the video and found that a voiceover was superimposed on it. In reality, the video is of a meeting that took place on December 9 after the demise of CDS General Bipin Rawat. There was no discussion of any community or religion in that meeting. The video was morphed and was available on various social media platforms.”

Malhotra said that during technical investigation, it was noticed that various accounts had tweeted the same video, with the same content and hashtag. “46 accounts had done the same with an ill-motive. All the accounts were created between October 2021 and December 2021. Technical analysis revealed these accounts were being operated from a single browser developed by multilogin.com. Analysis had pointed to these accounts being used from Pakistan. These accounts are being blocked,” he said.

Police then registered a case under IPC section 153A (promoting enmity between different groups on the ground of religion and doing acts prejudicial to maintenance of harmony) and found that two Twitter accounts had “started spreading the video”.

“The video was morphed with an ill-intent to instigate communal disharmony. The accused persons tried to show that this meeting was against the Sikh community,” said Malhotra.
