On 27th May, a “pro-ISIS” slogan was discovered on the walls of commerce dept., Delhi School of Economics.
Immediately reacting to it, Delhi University Students’ Union (DUSU) secretary and a member of the Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) Ankit Singh Sangwan filed a police complaint against the slogan on Saturday. He reported the matter to the authorities and subsequently filed a complaint with Maurice Nagar Police Station after some students supposedly informed him about the objectionable slogans. After filing the police complaint, he also shared the photograph of the wall that was tainted with slogans in blue and pink on personal Twitter handle. He also attached the copy of the complaint.
In his police complaint, Sangwan wrote, “I found that ‘I am SYN ISIS’ was written on the wall, which means that an organisation like ISIS is to be supported.”
