Ahead of the Panjab University Campus Student Council (PUCSC) elections, out of a total of 50 student leaders and members of student organisations affiliated to different student organisations identified by the UT Police only 15 appeared before the Sub-Divisional Magistrate (SDM), Central, to furnish surety bonds worth Rs 10,000 certifying that they will maintain peace during the elections.

Bailable warrants have been issued against the remaining who failed to furnish the bonds.

The Chandigarh Police had booked 50 student leaders and members of student organisations under Section 107/150 of the CrPC (preventive measure) on the suspicion that they can cause trouble during the elections.
