THE FACULTY of Engineering has placed students and a faculty member under “administrative investigation” for allegedly being involved in a Facebook group chat containing lewd messages and stolen private photos and videos of women.

In a statement released on Monday, the Faculty of Engineering administration said it was saddened with the involvement of students and a faculty member, emphasizing that the University “does not condone any inappropriate conduct exhibited by students or teachers.”

“We commit to a fair and timely resolution of the issue, observing due process but without compromising the transformative nature of Thomasian education,” the statement read.

No other details were provided in the statement.

Last May 31, a Twitter account named “Anon Leaks” shared screenshots of a Facebook group chat involving Engineering students and a faculty member.

It also accused fine arts alumnus and former Varsitarian Chief Photographer Alvin Kasiban of receiving and sharing private photos of underaged women, which he denied.
