New Delhi, DEc 28, 2012, DHNS:

Delhi Police are examining footage from CCTV cameras installed at India Gate to ascertain the location where constable Subhash Chand Tomar was allegedly attacked by anti-rape protesters on Sunday.

Police citing Tomar’s post-mortem report claim that he sustained injuries on his neck, chest and stomach, and are now looking to identify people involved in the attack.
“It will help verify contradictory statements of two eyewitnesses. Yogendra Tomar and Saleem Alvi’s statements are being verified and after forming a conclusion, we will identify the location where Tomar was attacked,” a police officer said.

Investigators will also identify and question policemen who were trying to revive Tomar after he collapsed at India Gate.

According to sources, police have 40 CCTV cameras around India Gate for security in the area. The cameras cover entire India Gate area, including the radials and the footage is monitored at Tilak Marg police station.

Eight persons were detained and a case was lodged the Indian Penal Code and Prevention of Damage to Public Property Act at Tilak Marg police station.
Investigators, however, have no evidence against them.

The accused Chaman Singh, Shankar Bisht, Nand Kumar, Shantanu Kumar, Kailash Joshi, Amit Joshi, Abhishek and Nafees Ahmad were released on bail on Tuesday.
Medical Superintendent of Ram Manohar Lohia Hospital T S Sidhu has also submitted

Tomar’s medical reports to the police after he was asked to join the probe.
Sidhu’s initial statement had contradicted the post-mortem report suggesting that the 46-year-old constable had no major injuries when he was brought to the hospital in an unconscious condition.

“We are simply re notifying the matter on January 2,” a bench of justices Siddharth Mridul and Pratibha Rani said.

“The police has further been acting in derogation of that illegal order imposing total ban and creating curfew like situation around India Gate restricting the magistrate, lawyers, court staff, people and litigants from approaching Patiala House Court complex under the garb that they apprehend problem to public order,” it said.
