After JNU student Najeeb Ahmad went missing, the University has come under the limelight yet again. After students locked the University VC M Jagadesh Kumar and other officials on Wednesday night, Home Minister Rajnath Singh has stepped in.
The Union Home Minister today spoke to Delhi Police Commissioner again and has asked for a special team to be formed. The probe in the case has been on by the Delhi Police and the constant pressure has called for this step by the Home Minister.
The HM was briefed about the situation by MoS Kiren Rijiju today. The JNU students have blocked admin blocks at the campus and have been protesting for strict action in the case.
“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,” the JNUSU President had said.
However, student party ABVP who was being alleged to have been involved in the kidnapping has refuted all claims. Alok Sharma from ABVP said that we have nothing to do with this and their party is unnecessarily being dragged into the controversy.
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.
