You can use the lDIF untility to delete the bulk users.Before that you need to put the list of users in the below format in an notepad and save with extension .ldf

dn: CN=user1,OU=Marketing,DC=reskit,DC=com
dn: CN=user2,OU=Marketing,DC=reskit,DC=com
dn: CN=user3,OU=Marketing,DC=reskit,DC=com
.
.
.
.
changetype: delete.

Once you have done the creation of the file then run the comamnd

ldifde –i -f filename.ldf -s DC
Where:
 -i import
-s DC name
-f filename.

using VBS this is the snippet to delete the user account
' Delete a User Account from Active Directory


Set objOU = GetObject("LDAP://ou=hr,dc=fabrikam,dc=com")

objOU.Delete "user", "cn=MyerKen"

Such scripts are available here:

** HOWEVER **
I would be tempted to create a separate OU and disable the user accounts and move them there instead of deleting them

If your organization has a need to mass-create AD user accounts, watch this video to see how its done without the need for scripting or other unnecessary complexities.

By default it will be avaiable on windows server os in %systemroot%\system32 .If not you can get the tool from the support tool folder on the  OS CD.

I think the DN specified is not correct.

Run the below command and Which will give you the right DN for the user.Use this DN and try to delete the user by using ldifde,

Dsquery OU –name "BALOGH Diana"
