About the accused in Chandigarh University MMS leak

The accused Sunny Mehta had left his studies after school and was friends with the girl who used to provide the videos to him. The 23-year-old youth who allegedly shared objectionable videos of girl students of Chandigarh University, Mohali, on social media, works in a bakery at his native place Rohru in the Shimla district. They were in touch over the phone, police sources said. The Shimla police detained Sunny near his house in Rohru on Sunday after tracking his mobile number shared by Punjab Police. He was later handed over to Punjab Police. He has been arrested under Sections 354 of the IPC and 66-E of the IT Act.

There is another suspect in this Chandigarh University MMS leak case that is Rankaj Verma, 31, who was also taken into custody by Punjab Police from Dhalli in Shimla. Sunny used to provide the videos to him, though the girl was not aware of his role in this case. Rankaj hails from the Sandhu area of Theog and works in a travel agency.

The accused girl had said that she had made videos of some girls and sent them to Sunny who allegedly uploaded those on social media. The girl has been arrested. 

The action of the Police

On directions from Punjab Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann, a three-member all-women Special Investigation Team under the supervision of senior IPS officer Gurpreet Deo has also been formed to probe the Chandigarh University MMS leak incident, Punjab’s Director General of Police Gaurav Yadav said. Appealing for peace and urging people to avoid rumors on social media, the top cop in a video assured that the privacy and dignity of everyone concerned will be respected.

Even as the police have taken the three suspects — the Chandigarh University girl and two Himachal youths — on remand, they are now investigating the role of a fourth suspect, besides the “photo” of another girl, as part of their investigation into the video “leak” case.

SIT in charge Rupinder Kaur Bhatti said they were working on the findings and the investigation had to be corroborated with the forensic data. The police neither confirmed nor denied the photo/video had objectionable content.

Cops told, addressing different media houses that only four videos have been found on the phone of the woman student accused of taking and releasing obscene videos of girls at the hostel university in Punjab’s Mohali. But all these are of this woman which she sent to her boyfriend, Mohali’s top police officer Navreet Singh Virk said. There has also been no suicide attempt at the university, as is being claimed by the protesting students. The videos they claim are being circulated, are yet to be found, he added.

The protest came to an end on Monday on the assurance given by the Police to all the students on the University premises. 

Further course of action

The University has been called off till the 24th of September and students have reported going to their respective homes as they had been mentally disturbed by the Chandigarh University MMS leak case. The police had sought 10 days’ remand from the court but they have been provided for a week. The investigation is in full swing as police officials have begun to track all the events sequentially.

There have been also threat calls to the boarders of the hostel. They have reported that the calls have been connected through Canada where they are threatened to drop all the charges against the accused. This has also been another part of the investigation which will be analyzed by the police officials.
