According to the authorities, the argument at the university in Mohali, Punjab, was reportedly started by rumours that generated fear among the new students. Despite police promises of a Special Investigation Team’s additional investigation, the students were unsatisfied, and they protested at the campus till late in the evening.
The woman, a resident of the hostel, was detained and charged with voyeurism and violating the IT Act. Sunny Mehta, her 23-year-old boyfriend who works for a travel firm, was also detained in Shimla. According to the police, they have also detained a second man from Shimla who works at a bakery.
In response to the demonstrations, the Punjab police established a Special Investigation Team under the direction of a senior IPS officer to look into the claims made by the students. A high-level investigation into the tragedy had been promised by Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann.
Dr. RS Bawa, the pro-chancellor of the university, stated in a statement earlier today that “the rumour that 60 problematic MMS had been identified of students…is entirely incorrect and baseless.”
“There is only one video of the accused herself, as far as our inquiry has shown. She hasn’t filmed anyone else on tape before, “Vivek Soni, the police chief in Mohali, is quoted as saying.
According to senior Punjab Police official Gurpreet Deo, the police spoke with 50 to 60 female students who share a floor with the accused. The majority of them have joined a new session and are strangers, according to Ms. Deo, who was quoted by the news source Press Trust of India.
“To be clear, the pupils are now content because their issues have been taken care of. The students wanted to know if the accused’s phone included any videos of other girls. At first glance, we did not find any such videos, “She spoke.
The accused woman’s phone has been sent for forensic testing, which can find and retrieve erased videos. The police are still looking into the situation.
