30 days after Najeeb’s disappearance, JNU students mount pressure on clueless administration
Thirty days after Najeeb Ahmed had gone missing from Jawaharlal Nehru University, the administration still remains clueless in locating him and penalising the culprits behind it.
An MSc Biotechnology student, Najeeb has been missing from since October 15 after allegedly having a scuffle with ABVP members. The RSS affiliated student organisation activists had reportedly lynched him even in front of the Chief Warden of the Mahi/Mandavi hostel where Najeeb was staying.
The JNU Students Union has given a national call for a protest on Tuesday to intensify pressure on the administration. Senior Opposition leaders including D. Raja (MP, CPI), Javed Ali Khan (MP, SP), Dharmveer Gandhi (MP), Ashutosh (former Journalist and leader of AAP) is likely to address the demonstration.
Student organisations, mainly left, have been organising protests demanding to expedite the search for Najeeb and action against those who were involved. But JNU administration failed to acknowledge them.
Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal,Senior Congress leader Shashi Tharoor,CPI-M Politburo member Prakash Karat and CPI-ML politburo member Kavita Krishnan addressed the protesting students on November 3.
Najeeb’s family is actively participating in the protests organised by students. Fatima Nafees, his mother came to the campus the very next day Najeeb went missing and filed a missing complaint in Vasant Kunj Police station.
Nafees and Najeeb’s sister Sadaf Musharraf were detained by Delhi Police on November 7 along with students who were holding a demonstration towards India Gate.
