Mohali, September 20
For the second day today, the Special Investigation Team (SIT) scanned the crime scene on the campus of Chandigarh University, Gharuan, and recorded the statement of the hostel director in the video leak case.
Kharar DSP Rupinderdeep Kaur Sohi visited the campus again to continue the research. Experts, led by Forensic Science Lab deputy director Ashwani Kalia, scanned the communal laundry room on the seventh floor of D Block of the Le Corbusier hostel and checked for possible listening devices. The forensic report of the inspection will soon be handed over to the SIT.
Some girl students and hostel inmates had said they were afraid to use the toilets. Police said the cyber experts had been called in to investigate the matter and that no loose ends would remain in the investigation.
Ropar Range DIG Gurpreet Bhullar said: “We are investigating the matter thoroughly to allay students’ concerns. The statement from the director of the hostel is included.”
The leaked video shows the female suspect admitting to fellow students that she is being pressured to send the girls’ offensive photos and videos.
“The investigation is ongoing and many things are emerging. We are verifying the facts,” said SIT chief Rupinder Kaur Bhatti. Police have arrested a 23-year-old Rohru youth, Sunny Mehta, a 31-year-old man, Rankaj Verma, and a 23-year-old Chandigarh University student under sections 354-C of IPC and the IT Act.
