Najeeb's mother, sister lead protest outside CBI HQ

New Delhi: Fatima Nafees, mother of missing Jawahar Lal University (JNU) student Najeeb Ahmed, and student unions from various university on Monday staged a protest outside the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) headquarters against the lack of progress in the case.
"I have firm determination that Najeeb will come back one day but I will continue my protest and next time you will see ten times more people with me," said Nafees.
She added, "I am not alone, the entire nation is witnessing this episode and supporting us. People from all class and creed are supporting me."
Irked Najeeb's sister, Sadab said, "We are protesting to get the update over the missing of Najeeb, and want to raise question, why investigating agency are taking callous attitude over the warden- who gave false testament."
The protesters and police official were involved in scuffles for around two hours after the demonstration began at around 3 pm. Moreover, at around 6 pm, some of the protesters squatted near the main entrance and stopped officials from exiting. They were later removed by the police.
To control the protest, police pushed back the protesters who tried to remove barricades and lay siege at the two gates of the CBI building. "No one was detained. Most protesters dispersed by evening and only a few were left at the site," a senior police official said.
Addressing the protesters, Nafees accused the Delhi Police personnel of harassing protesters and calling them 'Bangladeshis'.
"Two of the protesters were taken to a nearby hospital - one due to breathing issues and other for bleeding," said agitating students.
"The court had in December last year directed the CBI to expedite the forensic analysis of the seized electronic devices and listed the matter for further hearing on February 27," said Najeeb's cousins sister, Sadaf Musharraf.
She added that they would not disperse till they get any concrete response from the CBI. "We do not have any option other than doing this," she said.
Najeeb Ahmed (27), a student of MSc Biotechnology, went missing from the Mahi-Mandvi hostel of the Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) on October 15, 2016. Najeeb had an altercation with several students, allegedly
affiliated to the BJP's student wing, the Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP), according to his friends and family.
