The delay in the announcement of the results took place after two students moved High Court, alleging that Lyngdoh Committee Rules were not strictly adhered to by the varsity authorities while conducting the polls. Following this, the HC bench decided to put a stay on the release of results until at least September 17.
However, the counting of votes was conducted, and the results were submitted to the University’s Dean of Students in a sealed envelope. The administration had cautioned the students not to celebrate until the final results are declared, as the matter was sub-judice. Also, the chance of re-polling could have been held, if Delhi HC rules in favour of the petitioners.
