A student of School of Biotechnology, Najeeb Ahmed, allegedly went missing on Saturday following a brawl on the campus the night before. An FIR for kidnapping and wrongfully confining a person was lodged at Vasant Kunj North police station yesterday after the police received a complaint from the student’s guardians.
Najeeb Ahmed, who studies in the School of Biotechnology, had arrived on campus just 15 days before he went missing. His parents are now sitting in protest near his hostel. Sister of Najeeb Ahmed has spoken in campus and brief about the events, She received a call from Police who asked them to visit mortuary for identification of a dead body, she along with her brother rushed and upon reaching she saw a dead body which was decayed with worms were crawling on it, after investigating it was found the body wasn’t of Najeeb Ahmed.
Watch her speech.
The campus remained tense with large number of students gathering at the administrative block in the afternoon to protest. After sloganeering and demonstration the students blocked the gates of the building.
After intervention from the security the locks were opened, but in the evening as most of the staff left, the students again continued with the blockade.
“The blockade is due to the insensitive way of handling the matter of Najeeb Ahmed — the violence against him by ABVP which led to him missing from the campus for over five days now and the JNU administration trying to shield the culprits while refusing to lodge an FIR,” said Mohit Pandey, president, JNUSU.
