Mother and sister of JNU student Najeeb Ahmed, who is missing since 23 days, were on Sunday detained when they along with scores of agitating students tried to take out a protest march to India Gate demanding intensified efforts from police in tracing him.

Fatima Nafees, mother of Najeeb, was virtually dragged into a bus by police along with other students when they were on their way to India Gate, triggering criticism from Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal who decided to visit the police station.

Fatima and her daughter Sadaf, were later released.

One of the protestors, Shahid Raza, alleged that police manhandled Najeeb’s mother Fatima. The detainees were later taken to Mandir Marg police station, police said. “The police detained us on way to India Gate. They manhandled Najeeb’s mother… in fact, two young women riding an auto-rickshaw were detained by male police officials who were not accompanied by any woman police official,” Raza said.

A police official said that the protestors were detained since restrictions under Section 144 of the Criminal Procedure Code, banning assembly of four or more people at one place, are in force around India Gate.

Earlier in the day, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal met President Pranab Mukherjee who assured him of seeking a report from the Ministry of Home Affairs and the JNU administration on the missing student.

Talking to reporters after the meeting, Kejriwal said he apprised Mukherjee of the matter. He also alleged that the Delhi Police did not take any action in the matter due to “political pressure”.

“People who were involved in the brawl with Najeeb were questioned by the police yesterday, 22 days after he went missing. That was also a formality. We have apprised the President of the matter. He has assured us that he will seek a report from the Delhi Police and JNU in this regard,” Kejriwal said.

“Met Hon’ble Prez to seek his intervention on missing JNU student Najeeb. He assured of all support n that he will seek report from MHA n JNU,” he later tweeted.

On November 3, while speaking at a solidarity meeting on the JNU campus, Kejriwal had accused Delhi Police of not probing the matter properly. Kejriwal, who has had frequent run-ins with the Delhi Police, had said it will not dare to pursue any investigation in this regard as RSS’ students’ wing ABVP was involved in the brawl.

          Mr. George , last time two rogues (Khalid et at) were harboured inside JNU by ultraleft faculty and ladies hostelites. What do you expect Delhi police should do ? If it uses third degree methods (a few slaps to the mother, sister, professors, students is enough), the guy will himself emerge. If you can approve the unconventional methods, DP will be more than happy to comply ...
