Protests rocked the university campus in Punjab’s Mohali on Saturday night as some students claimed that a hosteller had recorded several objectionable videos of women students in the common washroom.
As the matter sparked massive outrage, police said that the arrested student shared a video of only herself with a 23-year-old “boyfriend” and no objectionable video of any other student was found.
The university authorities too rejected as “false and baseless” reports that claimed videos of several woman students in the varsity hostel were made and leaked on social media and distraught students had attempted suicide after the episode.
The college has also formed a seven- member internal committee, which includes two students of the hostel, to probe the matter, News18 has learnt.
