The Chandigarh University administration took action after the students alleged that despite complaining to the Warden Rajwinder Kaur about this matter, no action was taken. She was dismissed from her duties on Monday expressing her anger at the warden’s behavior towards the students. Action was taken against the warden for not informing the police immediately about this matter. She was also suspended as she verbally abused the protesting girls. Also, it has announced that the university will be closed for a week.
So far three people have been arrested by the police in this incident. The accused who sent the videos, her boyfriend and another person were detained. The accused’s boyfriend, Sunny Mehta, who lives in Himachal Pradesh, works in a travel agency. Also, even though the police have arrested another youth working in the bakery, his role is yet to be known.
The students stopped their agitation early Monday morning with the intervention of the district administration and the police. After promising to conduct a transparent investigation on this issue, they backed down. Meanwhile, the varsity authorities have also denied the news that the videos of 60 female students have come out. In the case of the videos, it has been clarified that no one attempted suicide. However, many students have alleged that the university authorities are trying to cover up the matter of the videos.
Mohali Police Officer Navreet Singh Virk said that only four videos were found on the mobile phone of the accused student. She said that she sent these to her boyfriend. None of the students attempted suicide. However, the students were outraged by the police’s statement that there was no prima facie evidence that the videos were taken.
