Based on this, the Delhi Police on Monday said that it has taken suo moto cognizance of the matter and a case is being lodged.
“Investigation will follow,” the DCP North Delhi said in a tweet.
A Twitter handle whose bio described the user as a student of the college alleged in a post on the microblogging site posted a video in which men are seen scaling the compound wall of the college.
“Men climbing over the walls to get into Miranda House during an open fest. What followed was horrible. Cat-calling, groping, sexist sloganeering and more. Men entering safe spaces to harass gender minorities is nothing new, but they outdo themselves every time,” the Twitter user posted.
