Najeeb Ahmed missing case: JNU students involved in scuffle identified
Students involved in the scuffle at Mahi-Mandvi hostel of JNU in October, that allegedly led to the mysterious disappearance of MSc student Najeeb Ahmed, have been identified and their immediate transfer from the hostel recommended.
The office of the Chief Proctor has submitted its Proctorial Board report on the incident at the hostel, according to a statement from the office of Dean of Students at JNU.
Sources said four students were identified by the university in connection with the scuffle. Even as the JNU administration did not share the name of the students officially in its statement, sources indicate that the ABVP students found guilty are — Vikrant, Vijender, Aishwarya, Ankit, Abhijeet and Santosh.
“The report has identified the students involved in the reported scuffle, and has recommended their immediate transfer from their present hostel. It has also recommended that a strong warning should be issued to these students against repeating such scuffle in future,” the statement read.
It also noted that the Vice-chancellor has approved the report and has suggested that after Ahmed is found, the disciplinary action awarded by the Warden’s Committee for vacating hostel premises by him may be “revisited”.
The JNU administration has repeated its appeal to Ahmed to return to university and resume academic pursuits. Cops are trying to trace Ahmed but it has not been able to make any breakthrough even though a reward of Rs 10 lakh was announced for any information. Meanwhile, the report, however, failed to douse the anger among student groups as both JNUSU and ABVP have rejected it, announcing fresh protests.
