1/2 It is really saddening to know about the unfortunate incident at Chandigarh University. Since this matter is very sensitive, it is my request not to forward any unsubstantiated news. There is no news of suicide by any girl student.— Gurmeet Singh Meet Hayer (@meet_hayer) September 18, 2022
However, the police are denying the fact of attempt to commit suicide.
‘Only one student’s video was found’
According to news agency ANI, Mohali SSP Vivek Soni said, “This is a case of a girl recording a video and circulating it. The accused has been arrested after registering an FIR in this case. 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.”
