The Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) administration has said it is “considering disciplinary measures” against JNUSU members after repeated appeals asking them not to protest at the administrative block had “fallen on deaf ears”.

Hitting out strongly at the students’ union (JNUSU), the university administration said it was “spreading false information” and “indulging in unnecessary politicisation” over the disappearance of Najeeb Ahmad, and that it has “created hindrances” in locating him.

Students are on an indefinite sit-in outside the administrative block against “scuttling of protest space and justice for Najeeb”.

They have been questioning why the administration — which had issued showcause notices to certain ABVP activists on November 7, on the basis of a proctorial committee report which found their involvement  in beating up Najeeb —has not  yet taken action against the offenders.
