Rocky Tuseed lied in affidavit for DUSU polls, says ABVP
NEW DELHI: Even before the National Students' Union of India (NSUI) could celebrate the victory of Rocky Tuseed as president of the Delhi University Students' Union (DUSU), Tuseed was hauled up by the Delhi High Court over 'attempt to murder' charges slapped on him in 2014.
On Wednesday, a petition was filed by Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad's presidential candidate Rajat Chaudhary, claiming that Tusheed had concealed facts, including his arrest for criminal charges.
The petition claims that Tuseed did not disclose that an FIR was registered against him in Rajouri Garden in August 2014 for attempt to commit culpable homicide, voluntarily causing hurt and wrongful restraint at Shivaji College.
"It also said that Tuseed was sent to judicial custody for over two weeks the same month, and that he was under trial," said Saket Bahugna, national spokesperson, ABVP, said on Thursday.
"As per the Lyngdoh Committee recommendation, any per person convicted or under trial is not eligible to fight in an election," he added.
The RSS-affiliated student wing also alleged Tuseed of forgery, stating that he had taken admission in 2016 for MA in Buddhist Studies for a second time.
Bahuguna alleged that Tuseed had withdrawn his previous admission from DU and later made a minor change to his name – changing his surname to 'Tushir' – to again take admission for the same course.
"How can one person take admission twice in the same course while just putting minor change in his name? ABVP demands termination of Rocky's admission from DU," questioned Bahuguna.
Meanwhile, NSUI national president Fairoz Khan rejected the allegations, saying that Tussed is being framed for political vendetta.
