Protest in Chandigarh University over objectionable videos
The accused has been taken into custody. A case under section 354C of the IPC and Section 66E of the IT Act has been registered against the woman, the police said,
A massive protest broke out on the Chandigarh University campus after someone recorded objectionable videos at a girls’ hostel. Situation went out of control after a resident allegedly tried to commit suicide at one of the girls’ hostels. However, the university management claimed that no girl had tried to commit suicide rather few girls had ‘fainted’.
As per sources, three residents of the girls’ hostel approached the warden and claimed that one of the residents had been making objectionable videos. “The video of the warden, which is being circulated on the social media, has been made purposely. The warden was crosschecking the allegations made by the three hostel residents. We have investigated the matter and no objectionable video was found. Moreover, the hostel residents who are seen protesting in the circulated videos were also informed about the same. There has been no suicide attempt on the campus. Rather some girls had fainted in anticipation of their objectionable videos being circulated on social media. They were given first aid and have been sent back to campus. All the details of the incident have been submitted to the police,” said a senior official of the university.
