JNU seeks CBI, NCRB’s help to trace missing student
The JNU administration has requested all relevant Central agencies, including National Crime Record Bureau (NCRB) and CBI for help in tracing a student who has been missing since Saturday even as the campus continued to be on the edge with protests continuing for the fourth day.
Classes were also boycotted due to the strike called by the JNU students union.
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.
Asserting that the university is seeking help from all relevant Central agencies to help trace Ahmad, JNU said in a statement, that “Delhi police have been approached to investigate the matter and the administration is regularly in communication with the police. Police has informed that they have already registered a case under section IPC 365 and doing the investigations”.
“All PCR vans in Delhi and all SSPs throughout India have been alerted and efforts are being made to trace the student.
Further, the police has intimated all the six neighbouring states and put the information on Zip-net in Northern Zone.
The student unions of both Left and Right wings staged protests demanding the tracing of Ahmed. The protesting groups also blamed each other for spoiling the harmony in the campus and demanded the university administration to take action against each other.
Meanwhile, a group of students of Mahi-Mandvi wrote to the chief proctor specifying nine names claiming that they came to the hostel on Friday night and assaulted him.
ABVP also staged a protest at the administrative block demanding efforts from the administration and police to find Ahmad.
