Cops focus on 3 masked JNU attackers, investigating the role of experts. Indian News
While police were still destroyed, a source said the location of the three students at the time of the violence was being corroborated from the list of all active mobile numbers in the area and their call detail log (CDR) analysis .
The crime branch is also polling the role of a few “insiders” who were “accompanying and guiding” the suspects. This was revealed during interviews with students and hostel staff, who said the assailants did not knock on all doors and seemed to have accurate information about their goals.
We have multiple statements from people who said it looked as if the suspects had accurate information about their targets,” one policesaid.
Analysis of the appearance and appearance of masked suspects also indicates that they were all probably under the age of 30 and were college students. Police are trying to get CCTV images, photos and mobile videos from across the university to locate people who wear similar clothing, but without their faces covered.
Police are also in the process of sending some of the videos to forensic labs to establish their authenticity and rule out tampering. On Tuesday, police had appealed to the general public to share any mobile phone video or image of violence.
TOI also spoke to jNU security guards who confessed that they were outnumbered and had to retire several times during Sunday night’s violence. Some of them, who have recorded statements with police, said the peat of 100-150 people had vandalized the Periyar and Sabarmati hostels. A peace committee composed of police, UNV authorities and students has been formed to restore normalcy on campus. The first meeting of the committee was held on Wednesday.
Police said they would take guards to places they saw violence to reconstruct the sequence of events and establish the locations where the attacks had come from. Police officers are also trying to identify some of the vehicles that had entered the facility immediately before clashes broke out.
The security guards’ log books at all the gates have been recovered to verify these details.
Police are trying to recreate the sequence of on-campus clashes that took place in four phases – the last two are the most violent – until Sunday. The first crash took place near the social science school and the second near the administration block at noon.
Security guards who had tried to prevent students from attacking each other have also been asked to appear before the probe team and record their statement as witnesses to the incident.
Guards say the lights around the Periyar lodge and Sabarmati Point T, where the attack took place, were turned off from the control panels and appeared to have been operated by someone familiar with the controls.
The Crime Branch team went to the Periyar and Sabarmati hostels and spoke to nearly 150 students, principals and staff at the hostel. The actual frame images of all mobile phone images have been developed and shown to students to identify some of the masked youth.
Police have also analyzed and reduced to zero at locations of more than 800 mobile phones that were found active throughout the university campus. They have retrieved PCR call logs of the day and would record callers’ states and treat them as eyewitness accounts.
