At around 10:15 am on Wednesday, NSUI supporters along with their presidential candidate Pradeep Vijayran and Vice Presidential candidate Prerna Singh were physically assaulted when they were campaigning at PGDAV College at Nehru Nagar. According to sources, 4-5  supporters along with the candidates were stopped from campaigning when volunteers of opposing parties arrived on the scene and tried to stop them. The police was reportedly present on the scene and were armed with iron rods. “They were men of ABVP’s candidate along with the brother of a CYSS candidate,” said Amit Pathania, a national secretary of NSUI.

Pradeep Vijayran was rushed to AIIMS where he got  15 stitches and VP candidate Prerna Singh suffered an arm fracture.

In related events, ABVP candidate Satender Awana’s car was attacked reportedly by NSUI supporters in a suggested act of vengeance. His brother was assaulted with a brick at Swami Shraddhanand College. State Secretary Saket Bahuguna condemned the attack, saying, “CYSS attacked NSUI and spread rumours of ABVP’s involvement. Satender’s brother is in a hospital. There are cops posted everywhere in DU. The situation is a little tense.” Bahuguna  accused CYSS of the attacks on NSUI.
