One person was detained and another was arrested following the Chandigarh University protest.
As demonstrations against allegedly “leaked objectionable movies” persisted at Chandigarh University, Deputy Inspector General of Police (DIG) GS Bhullar attempted to appease the students by telling them that “implicit faith is crucial and “law is being followed.” Senior representatives from the district administration, police, and university tried to calm the students down as the protests raged on the campus into late Sunday night. In the presence of police, the majority of the demonstrators chanted “we want justice” while wearing all-black attire. They also chanted anti-police slogans.

Students who were protesting said that a student had recorded films of female students while they were bathing in the dorm. Later, the video went popular on social media. The students who were protesting also alleged that suicide attempts by female hostel residents occurred after the recordings became public. Police, however, denied the allegations of suicide attempts.
“The problem has been a lack of communication. We have repeatedly made clarifications. Students are given the assurance that the law is being upheld and that all legal processes are being followed “said DIG Bhullar.
