Video clips manipulated: Seer

January 13, 2005 14:46 IST

Kanchi seer Jayendra Saraswati on Thursday described the video clipping of his custodial interrogation as "manipulated".

The clip, which was leaked to TV channels, shows him as saying that the junior seer, Vijayendra Saraswati, was only concerned that he or his brother should not be arrested in the Sankararaman murder case.

He also said Vijayendra had no regard for him.

In a letter submitted on behalf of the seer to the special police team that is probing the cases against him, mutt advocate A Shanmugam said the clipping were "manipulated as if my client made some admissions, thereby causing damage to his reputation and wounding the feelings of the devotees".

"The video recordings are manipulated and my client denies the same," he said in the letter.

Seer, why don't you just step down from your Mutt position. You are just tarnishing the image of hindus by making those stupid statements.
