The All India Majlis-eIttehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) Okhla members organised a candle march in protest against Bhopal encounter and missing JNU student Najeeb Ahmad from the campus after an alleged brawl with ABVP members, reports Mohd Afzal Khan Afridi, AIMIM president Okhla ward 205 for OKHLATIMES.COM.
The march was taken out at 7.00 pm from Zakir Nagar Dhalan to Okhla Head in leadership of AIMIM Delhi president Irfanullah Khan, demanding Supreme Court enquiry into the encounter.
AIMIM president Khan said: “We demand for a Supreme Court enquiry into the jail break and the encounter. Killing suspects and under-trials in encounter will not help the cause of justice. Let the SC intervene and find the authenticity of the encounter. Further, there is discrepancy in the statements issued by the Home Minister, ATS chief and police officials.”
He said: “We also insist to find the missing JNU student Ahmad, who has gone missing for a month now. We demand the CBI to find the missing student.”
Delhi AIMIM team also participated in the march. The workers had put black tapes on their mouth.
Afzal Khan Afridi, AIMIM President Ward 205 said: “The nation is facing economical surgical strike with ban on legal tender of old 500 and 1000 currency notes. There has been a great delay in police action to find Ahmad but I hope that the Delhi Police’s crime branch succeeds in finding the missing student.”
