Missing JNU student: AAP MLA demands lie detector test on V-C
Aam Aadmi Party MLA Saurabh Bhardwaj on Tuesday demanded that a lie detector test be conducted on the Vice-Chancellor and those accused of assaulting JNU student Najeeb Ahmed who has been missing from the campus for a month.
“The government is claiming that we will become a superpower but when students are going missing from campuses how can we progress? Why Najeeb hasn’t been traced yet? Only because the students accused of assaulting him are from ABVP? I demand that a lie detector test be conducted on them,” Bhardwaj said while addressing a protest gathering at JNU. “Vice-Chancellor should also undergo brain mapping and lie detector test about why an action was not taken against the said students,” he added.
Meanwhile, Najeeb’s case is likely to be raised in Parliament by the Opposition, with senior Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad saying that the matter was not just about a student, or a minority person, but about very humanity.
The Leader of the Opposition in Rajya Sabha said the issue was raised during one of the meetings held on Tuesday ahead of the Winter Session of Parliament starting Wednesday.
Crime Branch to retrace sequence
Delhi Police’s Crime Branch that has been tasked with investigating the case of missing JNU student Najeeb Ahmed will be retracing the whole sequence of the incident. The case was last week transferred from South District to Crime Branch in order to have a “fresh look” at the case.
“We are examining each and every fact thoroughly again with a fresh mind and look. We will be retracing the whole sequence right from the beginning and scanning every clue that might have been missed out, and to have a fresh perspective,” Joint Commissioner of Police (Crime) Ravindra Yadav said.
