A statement released by the JNU Election Committee had stated that it suspended the counting temporarily but did not name the party which attacked the counting centre. The committee firmly denied allegations that it did not make the necessary announcements before starting the counting. “The counting process, which began at 10 pm on September 14, has been suspended due to the forced entry into the counting venue, and attempts to snatch sealed ballot boxes and papers,”the statement from the JNU Election Committee read.
Former union vice president Shehla Rashid took to Twitter and expressed outrage over the incident of violence. "Shocked! Never seen something like this in JNU. ABVP goons broke glass doors and forcibly tried to enter the #JNUSU_Election2018 counting venue last night. They attacked the members of Election Committee and tried to snatch ballot boxes. Counting suspended," she tweeted. The voter turnout in the election was highest in six year at 67.8 per cent as over 5,000 students cast their votes.
