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

Simplify Active Directory Administration

Administration of Active Directory does not have to be hard.  Too often what should be a simple task is made more difficult than it needs to be.The solution?  Hyena from SystemTools Software.  With ease-of-use as well as powerful importing and bulk updating capabilities.

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"
