New Delhi, July 10: Taking cognizance of leaked CCTV clippings of couples' intimate moments in trains that were uploaded on porn sites, the Delhi Metro Tuesday filed an FIR (first information report) with the cyber crime cell of Delhi Police.



"The Delhi Metro management has taken serious cognizance of these reports and has filed an FIR with the cyber crime cell," a Delhi Metro statement said.

Delhi Metro blamed the Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) for the leakage as it monitors CCTV footage. However, CISF refuted the allegations and clarified that they are just the "monitoring agency".

"It seems that the uploaded video clips have been shot via mobile phones and not through CCTVs of Delhi Metro. An inquiry has been ordered. All the CCTV footage tapes are handled by Delhi Metro," CISF spokesperson Hemendra Singh told IANS.

Manwhile Delhi Metro Rail Corporation  has ordered an internal inquiry and lodged a complaint with cyber cell of city police into reports that CCTV footage of couples getting intimate at metro stations found their way to international porn sites.

DMRC Executive Director of Corporate Communications Anuj Dayal said the the management has taken serious cognisance of the reported leakage of the CCTV footage and was taking necessary measures.

"DMRC is conducting a thorough internal inquiry into the reports of circulation of objectionable video clips. The Delhi Metro management has already reported the issue to the Cyber Crime cell of the police," Dayal said.

Central Industrial Security Force (CISF), which looks after the security of commuters in metro stations, said their personnel do not have any access to the CCTV footage in metro stations.

CISF personnel do not operate from control rooms in metro stations and could not have accessed video footage or circulated them, said CISF officials.

More than 250 clips of couples getting intimate in near-empty trains have been reportedly uploaded on a number of adult sites.

"The reported leak of CCTV footage of couples making out in near-empty trains has raised a very serious issue of privacy," said metro commuter who wished not to be named.
