Punjab news: A massive protest broke out at Chandigarh University on Saturday night after a girl student from the university was caught red-handed making videos of 60 other girls, who were bathing. Another student from the university allegedly posted the videos on YouTube. Soon after this, a huge uproar was seen against the university management. Police reached the spot after they were informed about the case. As per the initial probe, the matter appears to be of sharing inappropriate videos on social media, said police officers.

However, the Punjab Police later issued a statement saying the accused student only made videos of herself and not other women. "Electronic devices and mobile phones have been taken into custody and will be sent for forensic examination," said Mohali SSP Vivek Soni

Reports said that the girls who tried to commit suicide, have been admitted to a hospital. However, University management has denied reports of any of the students trying to end their life. They said one of the students fainted during the protests and was hence taken to the hospital.

Punjab Police has also denied reports of any attempt to suicide. "It's a matter of a video being shot by a girl student and circulated. An FIR has been registered in the matter and the accused is arrested. No death reported related to this incident. As per medical records, no attempt (to commit suicide) is reported," said Soni.

As per reports, the girl student who shot the videos is from Mohali, and she sent the video to a friend living in Shimla. The videos soon went viral, and one of the girl students who were in the video also tried to commit suicide. 

Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) National convenor and Delhi Chief Minister took cognizance of the matter and tweeted, "This is very serious and shameful. All the culprits involved in this will get the harshest punishment. Victim girls have courage. We are all with you. All act with patience,"

Punjab Minister of School Education Harjot Singh Bains reacted to the issue and asked students to remain calm. He said the guilty will be caught and punished. "I humbly request all the students of Chandigarh University to remain calm, no one guilty will be spared. It’s a very sensitive matter & relates to dignity of our sisters & daughters. We all including media should be very very cautious, it is also test of ours now as a society," he wrote.

The protest was held on the university campus located at Ludhiana-Chandigarh road past midnight. The woman student who was involved in sharing the videos online has been apprehended. She had made videos of some women students and sent those to a youth in Shimla who allegedly uploaded those on social media, reported PTI. Police said an investigation into the matter was underway.
