JNU porn video scandal: Two students suspended

New Delhi: The Jawaharlal Nehru University
on Wednesday suspended two students in connection with a scandal
involving a pornographic video clip on the basis of an inquiry
report`s preliminary findings.



The students were suspended pending the completion of the
inquiry, being headed by Chief Proctor H B Bohidar.
"Two students have been suspended by the Chief Proctor in
connection with this incident. This has been done on the basis
of the preliminary findings of the probe panel," Dean of
Students Welfare V K Jain said.



The video clip circulating around the campus showed two
students of the School of Languages in a compromising
position. The boy who allegedly shot the video is a student of
computer applications, officials said, adding that the girl
left the university last year.



The varsity had made it clear that strong action would be
taken against those found guilty.



Both the suspended students are residents of Tapti
hostel, an official said.



The University officials had earlier said they intended
to finish their inquiry within a week and would then approach
the police with a formal complaint.



The panel probing the incident questioned a number of
students over the past two days.
The video clip was reportedly shot in April last year in
JNU`s Tapti hostel. The incident came to light when a
department of the university submitted the clip to the
Proctor`s office.



An HRD ministry official had said the issue is likely to
figure when the newly-appointed JNU Vice Chancellor S K Sopory
calls on HRD Minister Kapil Sibal on February 10.
