Missing Najeeb: Supreme Court intervenes in probe of missing JNU student

(File photo)
Date : 28/11/2016

The Supreme Court issued the order directing the Delhi government and Delhi police as well JNU authorities to be even rigorous in the probe for finding the missing Jawaharlal Nehru University student, Najeeb Ahmad. The court questioned the status report submitted by the state which did not mention the reasons behind Najeeb being taken to the hospital.

The order also requested the JNU authorities to reconsider Najeeb’s expulsion from the hostel be reconsidered. The current petition is a habeas corpus filed by Human Rights Law Network on behalf of Fatima Nafees, Najeeb’s mother.

Najeeb Ahmad, pursuing his masters in Bio-technology at the Jawaharlal Nehru University, has been missing since 15th of Cotober, 2016. Before his disappearance he was brutally beaten up by a few identified students of the university in presence of the hostel warden and security guards. He was also given loud and open threats by the same students who are affiliated to Akhil Bharyiya Vidyarthi Parishad, student wing of the ruling Bhartiya Janta Party. An FIR was subsequently filed by Najeeb’s mother and JNUSU president naming the persons who brutally assaulted and threatened Najeeb.

The current order is attached.
