Delhi news: The Delhi Police has registered two FIRs after slogans to boycott elections were found written on walls at multiple places in the Delhi University campus area, officials said on Thursday (May 23). All seven Lok Sabha seats in the national capital will poll in the penultimate phase on May 25 (Saturday).

Bhagat Singh Chhatra Ekta Manch (BSCEM) claimed the responsibility for the slogans, such as "Ek hi raasta Naxalbari," written on the walls. The self-proclaimed youth organisation posted photos of the slogans on its Instagram page.

Police said they noticed the slogans written in the area during morning patrolling on Thursday. "Accordingly, two FIRs under the Defacement Act have been registered," Deputy Commissioner of Police (north) Manoj Kumar Meena said.

Meanwhile, on Thursday, two colleges affiliated to the Delhi University received an anonymous call, threatening explosions, officials said, adding that upon investigation, the call was determined to be bogus.

According to the Delhi Fire Service, calls threatening explosions were received by Lady Shri Ram College and Sri Venkateswara College in the national capital. "We received an anonymous call, threatening bomb strikes at Delhi's Lady Shri Ram College and Sri Venkateswara College. Fire tenders and Delhi Police team are at the spot," an official said.

Later, the Delhi Police informed that the calls were bogus and there was no need to worry. 

"Some calls were received threatening explosions in two DU colleges. However, these calls have now been determined as bogus. There is nothing to worry about," an officer with Delhi Police said.

Earlier, on Wednesday, Delhi Police said the Police Control Room in North Block, which houses the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA), received an email that a bomb had been placed. Earlier, in April, the Delhi High Court sought a detailed status report from the AAP government on the hoax bomb threat to several private schools in the national capital.
