New Delhi: Government on Thursday said a video clip, purportedly showing some uniformed personnel herding four naked men in Kashmir, had not been "authenticated" and agencies had been asked to investigate the matter.

"No one has been able to authenticate the video so far," Home Minister P Chidambaram told reporters here while replying to a question on the three-minute video clip uploadeded on two prominent social networking sites.

The minister said he had asked security agencies to find out whether anybody featuring in the video had spoken out.
"Until it is authenticated and the persons identified, I think it would be unsafe to rely on the such video," he said.
