Army man arrested from Arunachal Pradesh in ‘crucial breakthrough’
The Punjab Police on Saturday said it has arrested an Army man in connection with the Chandigarh University case, in which it was alleged that a hostel recorded several objectionable videos of girl students in the common washroom.
Punjab Director General of Police Guarav Yadav said Sanjeev Singh was nabbed from Arunachal Pradesh.
He will be produced before a Mohali court.
“Crucial breakthrough in the #ChandigarhUniversity case with the assistance of the #Army, #Assam & #Arunachal Pradesh Police. Accused Army personnel Sanjeev Singh arrested from Sela Pass, Arunachal Pradesh. Transit remand obtained from Ld CJM Bomdilla for production before Mohali court,” said the DGP in a tweet.
Police had earlier arrested three people, a girl student and two men, from Himachal Pradesh.
Protests had rocked the university campus in Punjab’s Mohali last week over allegations levelled by students that a hostel inmate recorded several objectionable videos of students in the common washroom.
Some students had even claimed that the videos were leaked. The university authorities, however, dismissed these allegations as “false and baseless”.
