Punjab government promises strict action against leaked videos from Chandigarh University.

Punjab Education Minister Harjot Singh Bains has requested Chandigarh university students to remain calm amidst the recent protests and has assured that no accused party will be spared.

Chandigarh University

On Saturday night, a Chandigarh University student in Mohali caused a massive protest after allegedly leaking private videos of 60 hostel mates online. The accused is said to have recorded videos of hostel girls without their knowledge or consent and sent them to a boy in Shimla.

The boy then circulated the videos on social media, leading to the girl’s arrest. A case has been registered against her under Section 354C (Viewing and/or capturing the image of a girl or woman going about her private acts when she is unaware) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) and IT Act.

Punjab Education Minister Harjot Singh Bains requested Chandigarh University students to maintain calm amid the massive protest. Assuring strict action, Bains called the matter very sensitive as it is related to the dignity of women and claimed that the accused will not be spared at any cost. The minister said an inquiry has been set up and strict action will be taken against those found guilty.

Taking to Twitter, the Punjab Education Minister said, “I humbly request all the students of Chandigarh University to remain calm, no one guilty will be spared. It’s a very sensitive matter and relates to the dignity of our sisters and daughters. We all including the media should be very very cautious, it is also a test of ours now as a society”.

BJP Leader Manjinder Singh Sirsa was greatly upset after hearing about the incident and has thus requested that the Punjab government and Chandigarh University administration take severe action against the individuals responsible. 

"Deeply pained to see the News of 8 girls from Chandigarh University committing suicide after their bathing video went viral. Apparently, their female friend made MMS of 60 girls in her hostel and sent it to her BF who leaked those videos. My heart goes out to innocent girls & their parents. Chandigarh University needs to take some stern action in this regard. Education Institutions cannot afford to fail in the eyes of our daughters!".

He has also asked for the videos to be removed from all digital platforms. “It’s appalling that this woman would do such a disgraceful thing as recording it. Let’s stand together as a society to support these girls.”, he continued.

The people and media should not circulate the video further and thereby show maturity. An insane act by a woman and her boyfriend shouldn’t be allowed to torment the innocent hostellers.
