Massive student demonstrations in Chandigarh University following “rumors” that inappropriate films of multiple female hostel guests had been captured by a roommate and spread online led to the deployment of substantial police forces, which transformed Chandigarh University into something like a fortress. Police have detained a total of three persons, along with the accused girl pupil and two guys from Himachal Pradesh.

Around 4 p.m. on Saturday, just several girls in the LC-3 hostel came forward to the warden with an allegation, accusing the student of recording a video whilst she was in the restroom. On social media, a short video purporting to show the warden reprimanding the girl child for capturing the event has also gained a lot of attention.

Numerous students demonstrated just outside of the dormitory later that evening, calling for the convicted student to be punished and given justice. After losing control of the situation, university administrators called the cops, who showed up on campus and attempted to calm the protesting students. In the meantime, two students who thought the suspected girl students were filming them passed into unconsciousness and were transported by ambulance to the civic center in Ghauran.
