Security arrangements for the marathon and cycling events during last year's Commonwealth Games appeared to have been compromised as the Delhi Police have found that the footage, submitted to them, had been allegedly tampered by a couple who bagged a R25 lakh contract for the job.
The CCTVs, installed by the company could not record the happenings in the area and most of the 61 DVDs they submitted to the police were “fabricated, blank or copy of some other camera recordings mentioning different locations,” investigations have revealed.
Following the revelations, the police registered a case of cheating and criminal conspiracy against Pawan Gambhir and Seema Rajput on Wednesday.
Gambhir and Seema could not be contacted for comments. The registration of the case came after a vigilance inquiry established that the CCTV footage was “blank or faulty” and they submitted it after “manipulating and editing” by changing the timing and location of cameras.
Gambhir’s wife Seema, who owns Indo-Tech Systems, was awarded a contract of Rs 25 lakh. The firm was asked to install CCTVs and other accessories by October 6 last year and it had to be there till October 14, a police official said.
