Army Man Arrested For Allegedly Blackmailing University Student

India: In the case of a girl student allegedly recording videos in the hostel washroom at Chandigarh University in Mohali, the Punjab police on Saturday arrested an army personnel in Arunachal Pradesh on charges of blackmailing her. The student and two men from her native state Himachal Pradesh have already been arrested.

There were massive protests on the campus of the private university, about 20 km outside of Chandigarh, after the matter came to light last Saturday.

Punjab police chief Gaurav Yadav today said a team from Mohali arrested the soldier, Sanjeev Singh, after tracking “forensic and digital evidence” gathered from devices seized from the other arrested accused.
