More than two weeks after JNU student Najeeb Ahmad went missing from the campus after an alleged brawl with ABVP members on the hostel, JNUSU members and Ahmad’s family members, including her mother and a few relatives, residents of Okhla, on Monday met Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal seeking his intervention.
Though Kejriwal assures them all help, said sources, adding that it is too early to say what the Delhi Government can do in the case as the Delhi Police doesn’t come under its jurisdiction. “I am with you and will do whatever is required to help trace him. It’s a very serious matter and the government will not let you down and use all its resources available to help you out,” Kejriwal said.
Since going missing, Ahmad’s family who are from Uttar Pradesh has been stationed in Delhi in search for their missing son. Besides meeting Kejriwal, the family members and the JNUSU and other activists have been holding peaceful protest on the campus and outside in the city mounting pressure on the authorities to expedite the search operation. However, there is no trace of Ahmad, JNU student.
A few days ago JNUSU and an Okhla-based organisation had hold protest outside the Delhi Police Headquarters. Also, they submitted a memorandum to Lieutenant-Governor Najeeb Jung and President of India Pranab Mukherjee seeking their intervention.
Till now the JNU administration has claimed that they have left no stone unturned in looking for Ahmad.
Okhla MLA Amanatullah Khan also accompanied the family.
