Najeeb Ahmad missing: Students involved in scuffle identified, to be transferred from hostel
The Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) administration on Thursday �identified� four Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) activists who were involved in scuffle with Najeeb Ahmad, a student who went missing after the incident.
The Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) administration on Thursday “identified” four Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) activists who were involved in scuffle with Najeeb Ahmad, a student who went missing after the incident.
The JNU administration has recommended “immediate transfer” of the students from their hostels.
MSc Biotechnology students of the university Najeeb Ahmad had a fight with ABVP students at Mahi-Mandvi hostel of JNU in October, that allegedly led to the mysterious disappearance.
The office of the Chief Proctor has submitted its Proctorial Board report on the incident at the hostel, according to a statement from the office of Dean of Students at JNU.
It has also recommended a “strong warning” so that they do not repeat such a “scuffle” in future. The decision was taken on the basis of a proctorial enquiry, which had earlier issued show cause notices to the four students after finding them “involved in hitting” Najeeb, who went missing from campus on October 15 after an altercation with ABVP activists, reported The Indian Express.
It also noted that the Vice-chancellor has approved the report and has suggested that after Ahmad is found, the disciplinary action awarded by the Warden's Committee for vacating hostel premises by him may be "revisited".
The JNU administration has repeated its appeal to Ahmad, to return to university and resume academic pursuits without apprehensions.
Delhi Police is trying to trace Ahmad but it has not been able to make any breakthrough even though a reward of Rs 10 lakh was announced by it for any information about him. The case was initially handled by a special investigation team of south Delhi Police but later the case was handed over to the force's Crime Branch.
