The girl accused of sending videos and her friend based in Shimla, both are residents of Himachal Pradesh.
The police arrived soon as they got to know about the incident at around 2.30 late in the night, however, the girls fuming over the incident lashed out at the police and vandalized their vehicle as well. The situation at the campus is too tense.
The police are now involved in investigating the matter, in the entire incident the most important issue is the continuous development of the videos that are being recorded, the girl has been making the video for a long.
Amid the broil, a rumor of 8 students attempting suicide whose video has gone viral surfaced and has been denied by Mohali's SSP Vivek Soni. While addressing the media on the matter he said, "Forensic evidence is being collected. So far no attempt of suicide reported. Medical records of students have been taken on record. People should not pay attention to any rumor."
One of the prime angles where the police are involved is to find the purpose behind collecting these videos. Police have also initiated action to nab the man from Shimla who was involved in the entire case.
