On job to make a tighter case against Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) spokesperson Ashish Khetan, police will have forensic experts look at the video of his July 3 speech in which he allegedly hurt Sikh sentiments.

In a few days, police may also call him to Amritsar, where All India Sikh Student Federation (AISSF) president Karnail Singh Peer Mohammad lodged the complaint. Amritsar police commissioner Amar Singh Chahal confirms “we have the video of Khetan’s comparing his party’s manifesto to holy books, including Guru Granth Sahib, and we want to prove it is not doctored”. “We will send summons to him or his party office,” said Chahal.

Police registered the case even after Khetan had apologised. The complainant is likely to re-record his statement.
