"Men are climbing walls to forcibly enter Diwali fest at Miranda House, one of the most popular colleges of Delhi. The women have made serious allegations of molestation and harassment. We are sending notices to Delhi Police and college administration. How did this hooliganism happen? What were the security arrangements in place?" she said in a tweet in Hindi.

The students of the prestigious all-women college shared multiple videos on social media in which some men are seen purportedly scaling the boundary wall, roaming around on the campus and raising slogans.

Police said no complaint regarding the incident has been received so far. However, they responded to the videos on social media and said "some students (3-4) were trying to enter the college" but they were stopped, and the October 14 Diwali programme remained "incident-free".

There was no response from the college administration despite repeated attempts.
