Chandigarh University students protested in Mohali against the ‘objectionable video leak’ of several girl students on Saturday night.

The people protesting alleged that a girl student made videos of several girls in the hostel while taking a bath. Later those videos went viral on social media. The protesting students claimed that after the video went viral, some girl students even attempted suicide in the hostel.

However, the police are denying the fact of attempt to commit suicide.

Someone died in this incident.” As per medical records, there was no suicide attempt and no one died. Due to nervousness and restlessness, one student was unwell who was taken in an ambulance. Our team is in touch with him.”
