New Delhi: As a documentary on the accused of December 2012 Delhi gangrape case created storm on Tuesday, a government inquiry found that permission to interview accused Mukesh Singh was actually granted by the Ministry of Home Affairs in July 2013.
However, while granting the permission, the ministry asked Tihar Jail authority and the documentary maker to take consent of the accused before taking the interview.
The MHA also asked the jail authority to go through the raw footage after the shooting and give the final consent.
One of the accused of the brutal rape case, Mukesh Singh gave consent for the interview but, according to sources, the Tihar Jail authorities did not follow the instructions of the govt and did not go through the raw footage of the interview byte.
If we believe on reports, the raw footage was 16-hour long.
Also, according to sources, no initiative was taken by Tihar Jail authority and government to access the raw footage of the interview byte of Singh.
In the controversial interview, Singh said that a girl is far more responsible for rape than a boy.
The accused also said that had the girl and her friend not tried to fight back, the gang would not have inflicted the savage beating.
