jnu, jnu student Mother of Najeeb Ahmed being detained by police

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.

      The fascists goons who attacked Nasib have not been arrested, instead victim's mother has been detained, the colonial fascist 144 IPC of 1860 is being used by the Brown sahibs to violate consution, and rights of the people Where is Supreme courts sleeping letting free hand to the violators of the fundamental rights of the people who made this consution and has not annulled these anti- national and anti indian laws. The colonial fascist laws along with Sedition Act musty be abolished immediately destroying the consutional democracy.

          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 ...

                      He might be hiding somewhere, spreading rumour of suicide since he knows kejerival is giving lot of money. These rogues have no interest in studying. They will enjoy on tax payer's money

                                I won''t be surprised later when we may know Nazeeb is found in Syria fighting for ISIS. Many Muslims in Kerala and rest part of India who were missing at one point are all traced to their "Dream Land" ISIS. Why the police is to spend energy looking for them in India?

                                  Just wondering how a 27 year old man is still stuck to the university. Is he one of the eternal students who does not need a job?

                                      Najeeb will hide and the protests will continue till the Punjab and UP elections. So don't worry about the drama. We have seen beef festivals, intolerance drama and award vapasi all over India before the Bihar election.

                                        So many people including small children in this country go missing every day. Why are these politicians so concerned only about one JNU student? Why there are no protests on other missing cases?
