Protesting Jawaharlal Nehru (JNU) students hit Delhi’s streets on Sunday too. Najeeb Ahmed’s mother Fatima Nafees has demanded CBI probe in the matter – she has complained of police high-handedness when they were allegedly ‘detained’. “What am I asking for? I only want my son back. If police can’t do this, please give this case to CBI,” she said. It has almost 23 days since Ahmed has been missing, the police are clueless in the matter that prompt JNU students, Najeeb’s family and others to stage a protest Sunday. But during the protest both Najeeb’s mother and his sister along with some JNU students were detained by the police, however they were later released.
Reiterating her plea, Ahmed’s mother said, ” We only went there (at India Gate) to sit but police dragged us and manhandled us while removing us.”

Ahmed’s sister Sadaf, also made the same complaint, “We were standing there but Delhi police came and took us. Don’t I have the right to ask where my brother is?”
While denying the allegations, Joint Commissioner of Police, (South West) Deependra Pathak said, “No one has been manhandled and no force has been used against anyone.” “Many gathered in small groups at India Gate to protest, they were persuaded against it but no heed was paid. A few protesters were removed and taken to police station,they have been sent back to their destinations including Najeeb Ahmed’s mother,” he further said.
