Family of JNU student Najeeb Ahmed who has been missing from the campus for 13 days, claimed they have “no faith” in the university administration and investigation by the police during a press conference in JNU.

JNU Students’ Union (JNUSU) also demanded that police should first rule out his presence in the JNU campus by searching the jungles and also demanded that those accused of assaulting Ahmed should be questioned and arrested immediately.

A student of School of Biotechnology, Najeeb Ahmed, allegedly went missing on 15 October following a brawl on the campus allegedly with members of ABVP, the night before.

“We have no faith in the university administration and the police investigation so far as the varsity officials are spreading misinformation and shielding the culprits. Those who have been named as assaulters are roaming freely. They have not even been questioned,” she told reporters as she broke down.

Claiming that Ahmed is not a person who would leave the campus on his own, his mother Fatima Nafees said he has been targeted as he was new and didn't have many friends in the university.

Shahid, a resident of Mahi-Mandvi, said that he was a witness and also got beaten during the violence along with Mohit Kumar Pandey, JNUSU president.

Shahid claimed that the proctor is making statements based on what Vikrant is saying and is refusing to state the depositions of the 20-odd neutral students.

Alleging bias, Ahmed’s sister Sadaf said, “No written explanation was taken from the assaulters that day who beat up Najeeb in front of everyone, including the warden. But they took it in writing from Najeeb. We have to force entry to proctor’s office and to meet the VC.”

JNU administration had issued a 25-point bulletin in connection with the case even as the varsity's teachers association fumed over the authorities “selectively omitting” the fact that he was attacked during a brawl a night before.

JNUSU has been agitating, alleging inaction on the administration's part.

Following directives from the Home Ministry, Delhi Police had formed a special investigative team to trace the missing student.
