Currently, the social media and the region of Chandigarh is facing the full wrath of afraid female students from Chandigarh University.

On 18th September hundreds of students started to protest against the university after claims came out that a woman student had allegedly leaked objectionable and sensitive videos of other students. Some reports claimed that the videos were shared over the internet, while some claimed that the student shared them with her boyfriend.

Soon after reports came out that some of the female students were trying to commit suicide because of the trauma of the situation. One Twitter user wrote “I just spoke with my best friend who is studying there. She said 8 girls have committed su!c!de together out of which 7 are in ICU and they couldn’t save another one. I asked her about the twt of the univ denying it she said they were being offered 4 lkhs to keep their mouth shut”.

They also added that “Also she said police came yesterday. The girl who leaked the video was arrested and police also said the girls were wearing revealing clothes so it was deserved. Like wtf!! Also the univ have put exams tomorrow for all the students so that they don’t say anything.”

Another post also claimed that the university is allegedly suspending the students who are filing complaints against it with the UGC.

Right now, the authenticity of these claims is not clear, since the university officials have claimed that there has been no suicide attempt.

Mohali Senior Superintendent of Police, Vivek Sheel Soni also has been quoted to be saying that they did not get any video of the other female students as being claimed. He said “I want to make it clear that we did not get any video of the other women. We are also not giving the clean chit to anyone. The prime accused has been arrested and we have confiscated the equipment.”

Further, he also refuted the suicide claims and said that “I request through your platform to not spread rumours. There is no instance of anyone dying. There were several videos going viral on this incident. However, there is no indication of any death among the students. So far, no attempt to suicide has come to our notice. Medical records of students are being obtained.”

As per a Logical Indian report, Mohali DC Amit Talwar was quoted saying that “There was misinformation that several girls have committed suicide over the video which is completely false. One girl fainted due to anxiety following which she was taken to the hospital which was misrepresented as a suicide attempt.”

We take a look at how the actual students and young people on the ground level are reacting to this whole incident.
