Tension prevails at the Chandigarh University campus, where massive protests were witnessed post-midnight after objectionable videos were leaked of reportedly around 60 girls taking baths in the campus hostel. Students protested on the campus and chanted ‘We Want Justice’ slogans.
According to police, the videos were recorded by a girl student, who has since been arrested. The videos were allegedly shared with some person(s) who reportedly uploaded them on adult platforms.
The girl student has been booked under Sections 354C of the Indian Penal Code and the IT Act. According to some reports, some students whose videos got leaked online attempted suicide on campus. However, the police and the state government denied any such incident. SSP Mohali Vivek Soni said there was no attempt to commit suicide. Rather, there were some girls who had fainted during the protests and ambulances were called in to shift them to the hospital
