A day after the Punjab Police arrested an army personnel posted in Arunachal Pradesh in the Chandigarh University video-leak case, the accused was brought to Kharar on Sunday evening

Sanjeev Kumar, who has been named as the main accused in the case, will be produced before the Kharar court on Monday. He had been arrested from Arunachal Pradesh with the assistance of army authorities and police personnel in Assam and Arunachal Pradesh. A girl student and two men from Himachal have already been arrested in the case.

Deputy superintendent of police (DSP, Kharar) Rupinderdeep Kaur, one of the members of the Special Investigation Team, probing the case said, “We will start questioning him on Monday on how he got in contact with the girl and started blackmailing her.
