A court on Monday sentenced three people detained in connection with the “leaked objectionable recordings” case related to the Chandigarh University campus to a seven-day police detention.
All three of the people who were detained, according to attorney Sandeep Sharma, have been placed on a seven-day police hold. He added several videos found will also be investigated in addition to sending their cell phones for forensic examination. The three suspects were detained and transferred to the Kharar court, which is close to Mohali.
This occurs only days after the controversy around the “objectional films” erupted, which was followed by sizable student demonstrations in Mohali. Students who were protesting said that a student had recorded footage of female classmates taking baths. It is also claimed that the videos were uploaded to social media.
After the recordings became public, several of the female students residing in the dormitory, according to the protesting students, allegedly tried to commit themselves. Police, however, denied the assertion.
The formation of a three-person, all-female Special Investigation Team (SIT) of police personnel to look into the issue was ordered by Punjab Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann.
Three suspects, including a female college student, were detained in connection with the crime.
Gurpreet Kaur Deo, a senior IPS officer, will oversee the SIT team.
“SIT will investigate the scheme in depth. If found to be implicated, no one is to be spared. Two more people and one student were detained. We appreciate DGP Himachal Pradesh’s superb cooperation. Electronic gadgets were confiscated and transported to be analysed forensically “Gaurav Yadav, DGP for Punjab, stated.
He also urged everyone to keep the peace and warned, “Avoid believing unfounded rumours. Let’s cooperate to bring about societal peace. Make a plea for everyone to uphold harmony and peace.”
Chandigarh University varsity has reportedly been closed to students till September 24 according to reports earlier in the day.
