New Delhi: Delhi Police on Thursday registered
a case against unknown persons in connection with the filming
and circulation of a pornographic video clip in Jawaharlal
Nehru University (JNU) campus but no arrest has been made so
far.

The varsity was rocked by the scandal early this month
after its security officers informed authorities with a video
recording purportedly showing two students in a compromising
position in a hostel room.

"A case has been registered under section 292 (sale of
obscene materials) and Sections 66E and 67 of Information
Technology Act against unknown persons", a senior police
official said.

The JNU administration had approached police on
February 11 after an inquiry committee headed by Chief
Proctor HB Bohidar submitted its report to Vice Chancellor SK Sopory which recommended that the three students involved in
the circulation of the video clip be chargesheeted.

The University had expelled two students and
rusticated a third for their involvement in the scandal. The
varsity had made it clear that strong action would be taken
against those found guilty.

The boy and girl were students of the School of
Languages, while the boy who allegedly shot the video is a
student of computer applications, the official said. The girl
left the university last year.

The incident came to light when department of the
university submitted the clip which was in circulation to the
Proctor`s office.
