One of the most prestigious universities in Delhi is now part of a major MMS scandal. The JNU campus MMS scandal involves a pornographic clip which has been circulating on a video CD.
According to India Today, this scandal at Jawaharlal Nehru University involves two male students who are suspected for making the pornographic MMS sex video.Â One student is a computer science student while the other is in the School of Languages.Â This video was first learned about last week by the university's security office, but it's believed the video had started circulating about six or seven months ago.
Apparently the sex video was made last April and involved a female student from the School of Languages.Â She left the university as of summer 2010 and didn't graduate, but was staying at a Tapti hostel on campus when the video was shot.
The investigation will continue into the two male students with H.B. Bohidar, JNU's chief proctor, noting, "We are investigating why the MMS has been circulated now, after so many months. Or is it that the university administration didn't come to know of it?"
Bohidar said only once the investigation is completed will the Dehli Police be involved.Â The JNU campus has not seen this kind of scrutiny since an incident in August of 2009 when there was a case of "ragging" against four students from two different hostels.Â Ragging refers to a sort of psychological or physical hazing practice done in India and Sri Lanka.
JNU has plenty of distinguished alumni in association with the school including journalists Saurabh Shukla the Senior Editor of India Today and Udayan Mukherjee of CNBC News.Â This latest scandal could have the JNU campus in the news for quite some time, depending on how viral the news of the video becomes, and the outcome of this MMS sex video scandal investigation.
