Even after more than a month of mysterious disappearance of Jawaharlal Nehru University student Najeeb Ahmad from the campus after an alleged brawl with ABVP member, the family members and some university students have not lost hope.
They have continued to protest peacefully and meet people in power to convince them to expedite the process to find Najeeb.
The family has been camping in Zakir Nagar.
On Sunday, the family members with a few Jawaharlal Nehru University Students’ Union (JNUSU) member reached UP Capital and met with Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav, requesting him to intervene in the matter, according to a close family friend of Najeeb.
The development has come on a day when JNU enquiry has found ABVP member guilty of assaulting Najeeb, 27, a student of School of Biotechnology and a native of Badaun in Uttar Pradesh, who went missing on October 15.
“In the proctorial enquiry, Vikrant Kumar has been found to be involved in hitting Najeeb and using derogatory language with provocative behaviour on October 14. This is an act of indiscipline and misconduct,” an official order read.
The ABVP has, meanwhile, come out in Vikrant’s support and accused the university administration of being “biased” in conducting the enquiry, reported PTI.
“The proctor has taken deposition of those students into account who were not even present there. Not only the enquiry is biased but even the administration is siding with the left-dominated students union,” Saurabh Sharma, ABVP member and former JNUSU member said.
