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.”


He also asserted in his complaint, which is written is Hindi that various slogans such as ‘Justice for Naxals’ , ‘AFSPA’, ‘Aazadi’ , ‘LGBTQ’ were also written alongside the walls of the Department of Social Work. The complaint ended with a plea to take strict action against the perpetrators of the act and request the immediate painting of the walls.

Deputy Commissioner of Police (North) Jatin Narwal took cognizance of the complaint and assured that Delhi Police would now examine the matter.  With presence of CCTV cameras around, it is expected that it will not be difficult to figure out who wrote the message on the wall of Department of Commerce.
