Chandigarh University Protest

“All the culprits involved in this will get the harshest punishment,” says Arvind Kejriwal in Chandigarh University Video Leak case

Chandigarh: Massive protests have broken out at Chandigarh University in Punjab’s Mohali after a girl allegedly leaked objectionable videos of her hostel mates online. On Sunday, Punjab Higher Education Minister Gurmeet Singh Meet Hayer ordered a probe into the matter. The accused girl student has been arrested.

Mohali police commissioner Vivek Soni stated that no deaths or attempts to die by suicide related to the incident have been reported.

“It’s a matter of a video being shot by a girl student and circulated. No death has been reported related to this incident. As per medical records, no attempt to die by suicide was reported,” Soni was quoted saying by news agency ANI.

“Forensic evidence is being collected. So far in our investigation, we have found out that there is only one video of the accused herself. She has not recorded any other video of anyone else. Electronic devices and mobile phones have been taken into custody and will be sent for forensic examination. Apart from the video of one student, no other video has come to our notice,” he added.

Both the university and police have turned down social media posts claiming several girls attempted to die by suicide over the video leak. The privately-run university’s officials said one girl was hospitalized after she fainted and her condition is stable.

According to Punjab State Women Commission Chairperson Manisha Gulati, the investigation is underway.

“This is a serious matter, an investigation is underway. I am here to assure parents of all students that the accused won’t be spared,” news agency ANI reported.

Punjab Minister of School Education Harjot Singh Bains has appealed to the students of the university to keep calm.
