Mother of Missing JNU Student Meets Kejriwal

More than 15 days after her son Najeeb Ahmed, studying in JNU, went missing mysteriously after a brawl with ABVP activists, the hapless mother met Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Monday seeking justice to trace her son or find his whereabouts.

Though Kejriwal assured all help from the Delhi government, Delhi Police comes under the Union government and the special investigation team (SIT) to trace the missing student has come up with no clue about the missing student Najeeb Ahmed (27), of the School of Biotechnology.

Najeeb Ahmed, who hails from Badaun in Uttar Pradesh, had a brawl with the members of ABVP, BJP’s students’ wing, on the night of March 14. He was left behind bruised at the Administrative building on that fateful night. ABVP has lost the JNUSU elections in recent campus elections. The faculty and co-students have told the media that he was a brilliant student who travelled for hours daily to attend the classes owing to his poor background.

His mother Fatima, who said she had had “lost all faith” in the university administration, finally sought the intervention of the Chief Minister of Delhi though little can be expected from him, who is himself fighting the Centre over police powers exercised through the Lieutenant Governor of Delhi by the home ministry.

On its part, the Jawaharlal Nehru University Students’ Union (JNUSU) has been agitating against the administration and the students had even gheraoed the Vice Chancellor (VC) in the administrative building for over 20 hours.
