New Delhi, December 20: Although Delhi police is yet to find out missing JNU student Najeeb Ahmed, a proctorial enquiry conducted by JNU has found that ABVP member Vikrant Kumar is guilty of assaulting 27-year-old Najeeb during a brawl after which the latter went missing.
Najeeb Ahmed was an MSc first-year student of School of Biotechnology. On October 15, he had an on-campus fight with the members of Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad and went missing the following night.
“In the proctorial enquiry, Vikrant Kumar has been found to be involved in hitting Najeeb Ahmed and using derogatory language with provocative behaviour on October 14. This is an act of indiscipline and misconduct,” an official order read.
However ABVP members have refuted the report. They have however said that the report is biased and accused the university administration, for supporting left dominated student’s union.
“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.
The suspicious disappearance of a student has sparked a severe criticism of Modi government, Delhi Police and the university administration as ruling party’s ally ABVP is involved in the case. Several student bodies and university teachers have united to protest against the JNU administration and slamming Delhi Police for failing to locate the missing student.
Last month, an SIT was also formed to trace Najeeb Ahmed after Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh directed Delhi Police Commissioner Alok Kumar Verma. However the Delhi police failed to get any actionable clues in the matter so far.
The case is being handled by Crime Branch of Delhi Police. A reward of Rs 5 lakh is also announced by police for information about Najeeb Ahmed. A day before a woman from Uttar Pardesh claimed that she was contacted by Najeeb and he was locked up.
