The students of Jawaharlal Nehru University, led by the JNU Students' Union, blocked the entrances of the administrative block on Wednesday afternoon alleging that the administration has acted in insensitive manner regarding missing first year MSc student Najeeb Ahmed.
“We have been confined in a wrong manner. We have made all possible endeavors in searching the missing student Najeeb,” said Vice Chancellor Jagdish Kumar. However, the president of JNU student council Mohit Pandey has denied the reports of VC being confined. “We have not confined anybody. Instead, we have sent foods for them,” he added.
Earlier, due to violence at Mahi-Mandvi hostel on October 14, JNU administration summoned 12 students to depose before the proctorial committee.
Najeeb Ahmad, pursuing MSc in Biotechnology from Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) student and an AISA activist had gone missing under mysterious circumstances, police said on Sunday.
Najeeb Ahmad, was a resident of room 106 of Mahi/Mandavi hostel, has been missing since Sunday allegedly after an altercation with a few students on Saturday night, they added.
