The committee that investigated the molestation of a suspected phone thief at the University of Ghana has submitted its report to the Vice chancellor.

According to officials of the university, the committee identified some culprits who are expected to face sanctions.

The investigations were triggered by public outcry over the publication of video footage about the incident last month.

The footage showed some persons believed to be students stripping the suspected lady thief of her clothes and poking her in her genitals.

The University’s Acting Director of Public Relations, Stella Amoah told Joy News the Vice Chancellor has referred the case to the Disciplinary Committee for action.

“Those who have been implicated have been invited to meet with the Disciplinary Committee and a writ of summons was issued to these persons on 13 April,” she noted.

Meanwhile, the police CID has been interrogating some officials of the university as part of preparation to press criminal charges against the culprits.

The Daily Graphic reports that ten students whose names are being withheld are also assisting in investigations.

It adds that the police have indicated that more students would be picked up in connection with the incident.

The Legon Police Crime Officer ASP Emmanuel Basintale is quoted as saying they expect to glean more information from the ten students to help arrest those who actively engaged in the molestation of the alleged female thief.
