Girl students at Mohali’s Chandigarh University are scared to use the washroom after a video leak sparked huge protests on campus. While the protests have died down and the university has announced closure for two days; many students from nearby cities have left for home.
Students have alleged that a girl student shot as many as 60 private videos of her hostel mates and forwarded them to her boyfriend in Shimla. They also alleged that some videos were uploaded on social media and porn websites. Police have, however, denied this. They have said that the girl had shot videos of herself and shared them with her boyfriend. Police have found no other video of any other girl, and said rumour-mongering had led to panic and protests by the students.
The girl, her boyfriend and another boy said to be her former boyfriend have been arrested.
