NEW DELHI – After around six hours of counting (by the time of publication of this story), saffron student outfit ABVP was trailing on all top three posts of students union at the Jawaharlal Nehru University and combined candidates of the Left alliance were leading.
Meanwhile, various posts on social media indicate that in the case of defeat of the student wing of BJP/RSS combine, there could be violence at the campus. The counting of votes was suspended Friday night following attempts by some students allegedly affiliated to ABVP to snatch ballot boxes from the strong room.
Counting Update at 12:30 AM on 16 Sep:
President: Left Unity – 125 , ABVP – 112
Vice President: Left Unity – 144 , ABVP – 107
General Secretary: Left Unity – 147 , ABVP – 133
Joint Secretary: ABVP – 134 , Left Unity – 123
As counting of JNUSU election proceeds, ABVP has resorted to repeated violence. Ex JNUSU gen sec @satarupajnu & Sumitran were attacked by ABVP goons @ JNU gate. Hundreds of JNU students are threatened. What is @DelhiPolice doing? Can this situation be allowed to continue?

We can understand why JNU VC @mamidala90 would like to protect ABVP goons. But why is @DelhiPolice @DCPSouthDelhi ignoring the situation in JNU? Delhi Police, by virtue of their inaction, may be guilty of a mishap soon. ABVP & their hired goons are creating havoc, fear on campus.
