Days after the Delhi University Students Union (DUSU) elections, the Delhi High Court today sought the responses from the four winning candidates on a petition accusing them of defacing public properties during the poll campaign.

The high court also issued a notice to the Delhi government and Delhi University on the plea seeking to refurbish the properties defaced during the polls and for taking action against the candidates.A bench of Acting Chief Justice Gita Mittal and C Hari Shankar also sought to know the stand of the authorities on the plea for a complete ban on defacement of public properties by use of spray paints, posters, banners and hoardings during the elections.
