New Delhi: Home Minister P. Chidambaram said Thursday it was unsafe to rely on a video posted anonymously on websites and purportedly showing uniformed security personnel in the Kashmir Valley herding four young men stripped naked.

"No one is able to authenticate the video. Anyone (shown) in the video has not stood up or spoken out," Chidambaram said in reply to a query from newspersons here.

He said it was not clear where the video was shot and the people shown in it have not been identified.
"It is unsafe to rely on the video or arrive at a conclusion," he said.

Media reports said Thursday that a three-minute video purportedly showing uniformed security personnel in the valley herding four young men stripped naked was being widely circulated in Srinagar.
The video has been anonymously posted on YouTube and Facebook, the reports said.
