Huge protests erupt at Chandigarh University after videos of girls taking a bath leaked online

NEW DELHI – Students at a private university in Indian Punjab have come out and protested after a hotelier filmed lewd clips of other female students and shared them online.

Previously, the administration had attempted to cover up the protest in the name of the university’s reputation; however, a girl reportedly attempted suicide on campus during Saturday’s protest, prompting national and international media coverage of the incident.

Law enforcement rushed to Chandigarh University and dispersed the protesters and arrested one of the students.

Cops then filed a case against the girl, a freshman MBA student, charged under Section 354C of the Indian Penal Code and Computers Act for filming obscene videos and sharing them online.

Indian Punjab Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann condemned the incident. “Sad to hear of this unfortunate incident…our daughters are our honour…a high level investigation has been ordered into the incident…severe action will be taken against anyone found guilty,” he said. he writes in a tweet.

As the case made headlines, the university’s pro-chancellor released a statement, saying the rumor circulating in the media about objectionable clips is completely false and baseless. He said the defendant filmed herself and shared it with her boyfriend.

Meanwhile, law enforcement has denied any incidents of death or injury amid the controversy.

Amid the contrasting claims, several university students took to social media claiming authorities were trying to cover up the shameful incident. #Chandigarhuniversity is also trending on the microblogging platform right now.
