DU Elections 2017 : Fifteen candidates who contested the recently concluded Delhi University Students Union (DUSU) elections today were issued notice by the Delhi high court on Monday for defacing public properties.

The court issued show cause notices to the candidates of various parties contesting Tuesday’s DUSU elections after it was told that even Delhi Metro properties have been defaced by the candidates.

The court summoned the candidates citing the DMRC Act and the 10-year jail term prescribed in it as punishment for destruction of Metro properties. It also asked the Delhi Police why it failed to invoke these sections to book those destroying public property.

“The offences are cognizable,non-bailable and liable for imprisonment.A strong message should go to the public at large,” the court said.

HC¬†also made the Election Commission of India a party to the plea and asked it to ensure that the show cause notices are served to these fifteen candidates,including NSUI’s Rocky Tuseed,ABVP’s Ankit Basoya and Mahamedha Nagar.

The police claimed it had lodged 33 FIRs in this regard,to which the bench countered. “How many have been arrested? Can’t you identify the people? Whose posters are they? Under which sections FIRs have been lodged? We had asked you to take action. What have you done?” it sought to know.
