Najeeb Case: JNU Administration, Students Union Tussle Intensifies

03 January 2017
MEMBERS of Jawaharlal Nehru University Students’ Union (JNUSU) are protesting for many days at the varsity’s administrative block protesting the university’s decision to not allow protests over the missing student case.

JNUSU president Mohit Pandey has rejected the allegation about the students by the administration, as a “bunch of lies” and instead posed few questions to the administration over the issue. He alleged that the vice-chancellor was hell-bent on “destroying the culture of JNU through his high-handedness”. He also accused him of not making public the proctorial report, which says that some “ABVP activists have been found guilty of hitting Najeeb.” The students are protesting against inaction by the administration on the issue. Najeeb Ahmed, a first year MSc student, went missing from the campus on October 15 after he was assaulted by ABVP members during a hostel election campaign a night before. The JNUSU is organizing a rally from Mandi House to Parliament on 14th December to demand immediate action to trace Najeeb and punish the culprits. 
