The recent controversy over the alleged leaked videos of Chandigarh University students has upset the entire nation. On September 17, massive protests erupted at the university campus after students alleged that “private” and “objectionable” videos of several women hostel inmates were leaked online.
It is alleged that a female student in the university secretly filmed other women in the hostel bathroom and leaked it on the internet. Students in the varsity alleged that videos of nearly 60 girls taking baths in the hostel were leaked on the internet.
On the other hand, a statement issued by the university read that only one video was circulated. However, these allegations are yet to be proven.
Well, any intimate picture or video being shared without one's consent is not only a betrayal but it’s also a crime. At a time when social media is so easily accessible, such videos can go viral in seconds. So, what one should do if such an unfortunate incident happens?
In such a situation, the first thing that comes to one's mind is how to remove the same from the internet. There are many ways by which you can get the MMS or photographs uploaded on any site or social media platform deleted.
Reach out to Police:
The first thing one should do is to reach out to the nearest police station and file a formal complaint with the cyber cell. After your complaint, police will contact the website owner or social media platforms. If your complaint is proven correct, necessary actions will be taken.
Complain to website owner:
Another way to remove the content is to directly contact the owner of the website or social media platform. If you face difficulties while contacting the owner, reach out to the third-party website called, www.whois.com, which lists all the credentials and the complete ownership details of that website. Through this, you can contact the site owner and request to remove the video. If the video goes to any offending site, you will get a report option right below the site’s page.
Remove from Google search results:
If that objectionable photo or MMS appeared on Google search results, you can also reach out to the tech giant to pull it down. For this, you need to go to the support page of Google (support.google.com) and follow the steps listed out there.
