Defying the administration’s warning, hundreds of JNU students Wednesday turned up to vote for the election of student representatives to the Gender Sensitisation Committee Against Sexual Harassment (GSCASH).“A total of 2,366 votes out of a total of 7,904 were polled,” said Bhagat Singh Saini, chairperson of the GSCASH Election Committee. Students said GSCASH elections usually see about 30 per cent voting.

JNU had warned students and those contesting the polls that the body was “illegal” since it had been replaced by an Internal Complaints Commi-ttee, and that anyone found engaged with the polls in any form would face “disciplinary action”.

Chief Proctor Kaushal Sharma said, “I will wait for an internal security report to see who were involved, and take action.”
