The sting operation was released by the Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee (DSGMC) president Manjit Singh GK earlier this week.
He had said it was received by him from an unknown man on February 3.

Punjab Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh has avoided this question whereas his minister Navjot Singh Sidhu has already asked for strict action against culprits
Baptist World Leader Msiza Denied Indian Visa:Cong Rattles
Baptist World Alliance president Paul Msiza, was scheduled to attend a church programme in Meghalaya,
The Indian consulate at Johannesburg in South Africa informed the BWA president last night that his visa to visit Meghalaya for attending a programme had been rejected, Rev J R Sangma, general secretary of the Garo Baptist Convention told PTI.
The Garo Baptist Convention, a Christian denomination in Meghalaya, has over 2.6 lakh baptised adults in 2013, according to the Church census.
Baptist leaders are in touch with Union Tourism Minister K J Alphons seeking his intervention in the matter.
The BWA is a worldwide alliance of Baptist churches and organizations, formed during the first Baptist World Congress in 1905.
Meanwhile, the Meghalaya Pradesh Congress Committee strongly condemned the BJP government at the Centre over the rejection of the Christian missionary’s visa.
“This matter cannot be seen in isolation as that of just a visa denial. It very well exposes the mind-set of the present dispensation, the BJP and their masters in Nagpur,” Congress MP Vincent H Pala told reporters.

Though Dhindsa also named another Congress leader, Naidu ruled that no names would go on record.
Dhindsa asked who were Tytler’s accomplices as one person could not have killed 100 persons.
Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee (DSGMC) president Manjit Singh GK had on Monday released a video of a purported sting operation recorded in 2011, which he said was received by him from an unknown man on February 3.
Dhindsa said the accused in the sting claims that no action was taken against him except a sham enquiry.
Congress leader Anand Sharma said rules of the House do not allow any matter which is sub-judice to be discussed.
The House cannot be converted into a trial court, he said.
Naidu said the SAD member and some others had met him and showed him the CD of the purported sting operation.
The chairman said he asked the MP to authenticate and now he was willing to do so and place it on the table of the House.
