Chandigarh/New Delhi, September 18
Punjab Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann on Sunday said he was sad to hear about the unfortunate incident at Chandigarh University and a high-level inquiry has been ordered into the incident. He assured that severe action will be taken against whoever is found guilty and requested everyone to avoid rumours.
Students of a private university in Punjab's Mohali held a protest on the campus after videos of several girl students were posted on social media, police said.
A girl student, who was involved in sharing the videos online, has been apprehended. She had made videos of some girls and sent those to a youth in Shimla who allegedly uploaded those on social media, they said.

In a tweet in Punjab Mann said, “Sad to hear about the unfortunate incident at Chandigarh University...our daughters our respect...a high-level inquiry has been ordered into the incident...severe action will be taken against whoever is found guilty...I am in touch with the administration...I request everyone to avoid rumours...”
Meanwhile, Delhi Chief Minister and AAP national convener Arvind Kejriwal said those involved in posting “objectionable” videos of girl students of a university in Punjab on social media will get the strictest punishment.
चंडीगढ़ यूनिवर्सिटी में एक लड़की ने कई छात्राओं के आपत्तिजनक वीडियो रिकॉर्ड करके Viral किए हैं। ये बेहद संगीन और शर्मनाक है। इसमें शामिल सभी दोषियों को कड़ी से कड़ी सजा मिलेगी। पीड़ित बेटियाँ हिम्मत रखें। हम सब आपके साथ हैं। सभी संयम से काम लें।— Arvind Kejriwal (@ArvindKejriwal) September 18, 2022
In a tweet in Hindi, Kejriwal said, "In Chandigarh University, a woman recorded objectionable videos of women students and made them viral. This is very serious (matter) and shameful. Those involved will get the strictest punishment. The victims should stay strong. We are with you. Everyone should remain patient."
Police said an investigation into the matter was underway. Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) is in power in Punjab.
Punjab Minister for School Education Harjot Singh Bains asked the students of the university to stay calm and assured them that the guilty will not be spared.
