HC stays order upholding Tuseed disqualification

Delhi University Students’ Union president Rocky Tuseed.  

The Delhi High Court on Tuesday put on hold its single-judge order upholding the Delhi University’s (DU) decision to disqualify the candidature of Delhi University Students’ Union (DUSU) president Rocky Tuseed.

A Bench of Justice Sanjiv Khanna and Justice Chander Shekhar stayed the July 20 order till August 29, the next date of hearing.

The court also asked the university to produce the original records pertaining to disqualification of Mr. Tuseed, whose tenure will end in two weeks.

Mr. Tuseed was disqualified on September 6, 2017, for not disclosing in his nomination form for the DUSU polls that disciplinary action was taken against him for assaulting a student in his college.

This order, however, was put on hold by the High Court during the pendency of his plea challenging DU’s decision and he had gone on to become the president of DUSU.

In his appeal against the July 20 order, the student leader claimed that the reasons given by the judge for upholding his disqualification were different from those given by the DU, which has denied it.
