Missing JNU student Najeeb's family accuses VC, Delhi Police of inaction

Thirteen days after JNU student Najeeb Ahmed disappeared under mysterious circumstances, his family on Thursday claimed that their son has been 'kidnapped' as he was 'seriously' injured and couldn't have left the campus on his own. The family also questions the motives of the university VC as well as Delhi Police and accused them of inaction.

"My son was kidnapped by those who had attacked him at the hostel premises. I was told that he got seriously injured. How could he leave the campus on his own?" Najeeb's mother Farheen Nafees said during a joint press conference organised by the Jawaharlal Nehru University Students' Union (JNUSU) and Najeeb's family at Press Club of India.

"I can never believe that my son would willingly survive without contacting me," she said adding that the family have lost faith in JNU administration and the Delhi police as they are spreading 'misconceptions' and not doing anything constructive to trace Najeeb.

"The administration and the Delhi police are spreading wrong information about my son and trying to shield the assailants,"the visibly upset and inconsolable mother said.

The family also informed the audience that the Vice Chancellor, who had not contacted them so far, on Thursday called up Najeeb's mother minutes before she was to address the media. "The VC, who hasn't even spoken a word to extend solidarity with the family, has today called up to speak to our mother. He is afraid of being exposed," Najeeb's sister Sadaf Musharraf said.

The JNUSU on Thursday released a statement asking some questions from the Varsity administration and the Delhi police. The Union accused them of showing "insensitivity" in handling Najeeb's case so far.

"The Delhi police should explain why no interrogation has been done yet against the assaulters of Najeeb and why their call logs and messages haven't been examined yet," JNUSU president Mohit Pandey said.

On Thursday, JNU administration had issued a 25-point statement giving the chronology of the events. Students were upset as they said that the Varsity has 'omitted' the incident of Najeeb getting beaten by the ABVP activists.

Najeeb Ahmed, a first-year MSc student went missing on October 15 after he was allegedly beaten by some ABVP activists.
