Photographs of weapons in Delhi University Students’ Union office at an event, with new DUSU president Amit Tanwar of the ABVP and others seen in them, have attracted criticism.

In a photograph, rifles are seen spread out on a table in front of Tanwar and there is a pistol in the hand of a man next to him. Tanwar is not photographed holding a weapon.

The photographs were of an event held in the DUSU office Sunday in the memory of former ABVP leader and Amit’s cousin, Pradeep Tanwar. University rules state carrying of, use of, or threat of use of any weapons amount to “acts of gross indiscipline”.

Tanwar said the weapons belonged to security officers of a politician from UP. “The guns don’t belong to me. They belong to PSOs of a politician who came for the service. I don’t know who he is or his name,” he added. The photographs were shared on Tanwar’s Facebook page Sunday. They were deleted Monday.

The NSUI is planning a protest march against Tanwar and ABVP Tuesday. “This is the first time that such indiscipline has been observed inside the DUSU office,” said Vivekanand Pathak, national secretary, NSUI.

The university is yet to receive a complaint in the matter. The University Proctor, also the staff adviser for DUSU, could not be contacted despite attempts.

    To be very frank, we should stop all kinds of election from Indian universities, simply because all those election exercises are criminal plays in most cases. Almost all the student leaders in universities come from either political or criminal background. They are people who instead of working for student's cause are the ones who hinder student's welfare works and of course prevent all educations.

    Not surprising at all to anyone with a reasonable ability to discern fact from fiction , and has been following the news about the happenings in JNU after Feb 16 . It is very clear that there are thuggish elements with leanings towards to a particular party , spreading lies and trying to frame the JNU scholars .
