The Uttar Pradesh Police’s Special Task Force (STF) seeked permission to collect voice and handwriting samples of journalist Siddique Kappan from a local court in Mathura.

Kappan has been arrested in an alleged conspiracy case related to the gangrape and murder of a Dalit girl in Hathras.

The STF claims to have retrieved a voice message from Kappan’s phone, which is in Malayalam, sent to another person and it needed Kappan’s voice sample to investigate further, The Indian Express reported.

“Applications seeking permission to collect Kappan’s voice and handwriting samples have been moved in a local court of Mathura. The court is likely to take up petitions [on Thursday],” district government counsel in Mathura, Shivram Singh said, as quoted by The Indian Express.

Kappan was arrested in October last year while he was on way to Hathras to report on the gangrape and murder of a Dalit woman. UP police has said that Kappan was accompanied by two members of the Popular Front of India (PFI), an the trio was planning to create tensions to ‘defame’ the government of the state.

The police has claimed that they have recovered six cellphones from the possession of the four accused, and the mobile phones have been sent to Forensic Science Laboratory (FSL), Agra for examination.

According to the police, one of the mobile phones belonged to Kappan and a voice note has been found in Malayalam from the mobile phone; the STF needs Kappan’s voice sample which’s to be matched with the one on the mobile phone.

The police has also sought permission collect Kappan’s handwriting sample, which according to the UP Police will be used to match with “questionable” documentents found at Kappan’s Delhi residance.
