The university authorities rejected reports that videos of several women students were made and shared on social media.


Protests erupted on the campus of a private university in Punjab's Mohali over "rumours" that objectionable videos of several women students were recorded by a hostelite.


After a preliminary investigation, the police arrested a woman student and dispatched a team to apprehend a youth in Himachal Pradesh.


The university authorities also rejected as "false and baseless" reports  that claimed that videos of several women students in the varsity hostel were made.
