Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, tweeting about the incident, said that this incident is “very serious and shameful”.

Punjab School Education Minister Harjot Singh Bains, while reacting to the incident, made a Twitter post and requested students to remain calm, assuring them that the guilty won't be spared.

The ruckus ensued after the woman student was confronted for making MMS clips of fellow hostel students, which surfaced on the internet. The student was allegedly making videos of her fellow hostel mates and sending them to a man in Shimla, who uploaded the MMS clips on the internet.

Several social media posts are also being shared on the internet, claiming that the university authorities were trying to cover up the incident.

Meanwhile, police have rubbished social media posts claiming several girls attempted to die by suicide over the video leak. Cops have called them rumours.
