A woman hosteller studying MBA in a private university in Punjab’s Mohali was detained by police on Sunday on charges of making an Objectionable video and MMS of fellow hostellers.

Senior Superintendent of Police Vivek Soni categorically told the media that no attempt to suicide was reported after the incident came to light. Also, he said, so far there was no evidence of the video being made viral.

“As per the investigation, the accused made her own video and no video of other students was made. There was no evidence so far. There is so much misinformation and rumours doing rounds. We should respect the modesty of the accused student as we are investigating the matter,” he said.

Soni appealed to the public and the students to maintain calm and help police to investigate the matter.

As per reports, the accused hosteller illegally sent the nude images and videos to a male friend in Shimla, resulting in the footage being circulated online.

As the video went viral, a massive ruckus on the campus of Chandigarh University erupted overnight with crowds of hostellers staging a massive protest. Students shouted slogans: ‘We want justice’.

During the protest, police had to cane-charge students to disperse them.

AAP chief and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal reacted to the incident and urged the people to act with patience.

“In Chandigarh University, a girl has gone viral by recording objectionable videos of many girl students. This is very serious and shameful. All the culprits involved in this will get the harshest punishment. Victim girls have courage. We are all with you. All act with patience,” he said in a tweet.

Requesting the students to keep calm, state Minister of School Education Harjot Singh Bains said, “No one guilty will be spared. It’s a very sensitive matter and relates to dignity of our sisters and daughters. We all including media should be very very cautious, it is also test of ours now as a society.”

Punjab State Women Commission Chairperson Manisha Gulati, who reached the university, clarified on the rumours around victims of alleged video and MMS scandal attempting suicide.

“The probe is underway and law will take its course,” she said, asking the commission to inspect all universities so that such incidents did not reoccur.

Teachers scam: WhatsApp chat hinting question paper leak recovered

Published

 The Enforcement Directorate (ED), probing the multi-crore teachers’ recruitment scam, has recovered WhatsApp chats hinting at possible advance leaking of question papers to select candidates who took the written examination for primary teachers’ posts in West Bengal in 2016.

Sources said that the selective leaking of question papers were mainly done by the youth Trinamool Congress leader, Kuntal Ghosh, who was arrested by the ED from his residence on January 21.

The probe agency has also recovered Whatsapp chats indicating that Ghosh enjoyed the patronage of former state education minister and Trinamool Congress secretary general Partha Chatterjee.

From the documents seized from Ghosh’s residence, the central agency officials have also recovered copies of the admit cards of certain candidates who appeared for the recruitment examination for primary teachers in 2016.

The ED sleuths have come across the names of 35 individuals who secured jobs as teachers in state- run schools by paying money to the arrested youth leader and all of them are currently employed with different schools. Each and every one of them will be questioned to take the investigation forward.

“The recruitment scam seems to be in multiple layers, which again have sub-layers involving multiple players and multiple angles. The uncovering of one layer is leading to other layers. That’s why the investigation process is getting prolonged,” said a legal associate of ED.

The fact that question papers were leaked to select candidates was established after the ED sleuths noticed that some extremely below-average candidates, as per their academic records, scored exorbitantly in the recruitment examination.

Sources said that the marks secured in their academic examinations did not justify their scores in their optical mark recognition (OMR) sheets.
