A leakage of this scale from its central control room, if found true, could embarrass the DMRC and raise a big privacy issue.
Hindustan, the Hindi daily published by HT Media, contacted DMRC spokesperson Anuj Dayal on phone but did not get a response. A senior DMRC official said CISF was to blame because it monitors the CCTV footage.
But director general, CISF, Rajiv refuted the allegation. “We are just the monitoring agency. DMRC controls the database into which this CCTV footage goes, and so the leak most likely happened at its end,” he said.
