The Delhi government is contemplating to file a case against TV channels for allegedly doctoring videos of the controversial Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) event on February 9.
The Aam Aadmi Party led-government has earlier sent the magisterial probe report on the JNU row to its legal team to examine whether any action could be taken on the basis of it.
The probe did not find any evidence of JNU Students' Union president Kanhaiya Kumar raising anti-India slogans at a controversial event in the university, the allegation based on which he was slapped with sedition charge by police.

"Government has sent the fact-finding report prepared by the New Delhi DM to its legal team. The legal team will examine whether action, if any, can be taken on the basis of the report," a senior government official said.
Sources said AAP government may also consider criminal action against those news channels which had aired doctored footage related to the controversial event on February 9.
According to the report, anti-national slogans were shouted at the campus and JNU administration has already identified a "few faces" who were "clearly" heard raising them.
The magisterial probe report said their whereabouts must be found out and their role must be investigated.
The report said "nothing adverse" could be found against Kumar and that no witness or video was available to support the allegation against the varsity's students' union president. Kumar was granted interim bail for six months in the case by the Delhi High Court yesterday.
It said seven videos of the event were sent to a Hyderabad-based forensic laboratory and three out them were found to be doctored, including a clipping of a news channel.
