High drama overshadowed the announcement of the election results with the ABVP cadre refusing to accept the result, terming it "planned" and smelling a conspiracy.
As results were announced declaring the NSUI candidates victorious on the posts of president, vice president and secretary, with a tie between ABVP and NSUI joint secretary candidates, the activists of the losing side started shouting slogans against the Congress government.
They broke through the barricades and climbed gates of the election office, prompting police to crack down on them. Several people, including two candidates, were injured in the police action.
NSUI's Arun Hooda defeated his nearest rival Ankit Dhananjoy Choudhary of ABVP by a margin of 5,465 votes in the contest for the post of president. Hooda polled 17,621 votes against Choudhary's 12,156.
