Protest against poll codes; ABVP member injured in clash

A written complaint was submitted by Singh at the Sector 11 Police Station later in the night.

AFTER BEING provided with respective poll codes for the PU elections, members of ABVP and PUSU protested against the authorities on Monday night.
Saurav Kapoor, a member of ABVP, said, “This year, the authorities have not allotted the poll codes in an alphabetical manner. So far, we were campaigning using a poll code, which has now been given to SOI.”

During the protest, members of SOI and ABVP clashed, and a member of ABVP, Mehak Veer Singh, was injured. He suffered injuries on his head, and was taken to GMSH, Sector 16, where he received two stiches on his head.

Singh said, “I was assaulted by four unidentified people who came in an SUV outside PU’s Gate No. 2. The car had a sticker of the Students’ Organisation of India (SOI) on it.”

A written complaint was submitted by Singh at the Sector 11 Police Station later in the night. Police officials, however, said that no case had been registered yet.
