After intense protests on Saturday night and growing outrage over alleged leaked videos of female Chandigarh University students bathing in the hostel’s bathroom, the university team on Sunday broke the silence, calling the clips “objectionable” as “totally false and baseless”. Instead, he said a girl made a personal video that she shared with her boyfriend.
In a video shared by students, a girl is seen admitting that she made a video of other girls while she was taking a bath. It is alleged that this girl made objectionable videos of other girls and sent them to a boy living in Shimla, who made these videos go viral.
“All the rumours of objectionable videos taken from other female students are totally false and baseless. No videos of any student were found to be objectionable except for a personal video shot by a girl that she shared with her boyfriend,” RS Bawa, Pro-Chancellor, Chandigarh University said in an official statement.
The varsity team further said that there were rumours that seven girls had committed suicide, “while the fact is that no girl has attempted such a step. No girls have been admitted to hospital in the incident.”
Bawa said that there is another rumour that 60 objectionable MMS from different students have been found. “This is totally false and baseless. All rumours of objectionable videos taken from other female students are totally false and baseless. During the preliminary investigation conducted by the University, no videos of any student have been found to be objectionable.”
