On Wednesday, amid heavy police presence and some last-minute attempts to woo voters, the Delhi University Students’ Union (DUSU) polls went off peacefully with around 44.46 per cent voter turnout till 7.30 pm.
Polling took place at 52 centres in the colleges, where as many as 1.35 lakh voters have been involved in deciding the fate of 23 candidates in the DUSU polls. Last year, the election saw a 43 per cent voter turnout.
Heavy police force was deployed in the area, with around 700 personnel stationed in the north campus and over 500 personnel deployed in the south campus.
Installation of CCTV cameras, setting up of police booths in the campus were some of the issues.
