PATNA: The results for the Patna University Students' Union ( PUSU) were declared on Thursday morning after polling was held on all the 46 polling booths on Wednesday.

The results were delayed as a ruckus was reported at the Patna Science College – the main counting centre. According to reports, the ruckus was created by the supporters of the candidates who contested the PUSU over a reported delay in announcing the results.

Hundreds of students gathered at the main entrance gate of the Patna Science College and started shouting slogans. The counting, which was earlier scheduled to start from 4 PM, could not be done as there was an inordinate delay in bringing the ballot boxes from all the polling booths to the main counting centre.

The Patna University officials had brought all the ballot boxes to the main counting centre, Patna Science College, and they were opened in front of all PUSU candidates.

The counting of votes began around 11.30 PM.

To ensure free and fair polling during the PUSU elections, a large number of policemen were deployed on duty by the district administration.

Apprehending violence during polling for the PUSU elections and counting of votes, the district administration has clamped Section 144 of the Criminal Procedure Code (CrPC) at 17 places (educational institutions).
