A proctorial inquiry by JNU has found ABVP member Vikrant Kumar guilty of assaulting Najeeb Ahmed during a brawl following which the latter went missing over a month ago. Najeeb (27), a student of School of Biotechnology and a native of Badaun in Uttar Pradesh, went missing on October 15 following an on-campus scuffle allegedly with the members of ABVP, including Vikrant, the night before.

JNU had ordered a proctorial inquiry into the incident. “In the proctorial inquiry, Vikrant Kumar has been found to be involved in hitting Najeeb Ahmed and using derogatory language with provocative behaviour on October 14. This is an act of indiscipline and misconduct,” an official order read.

Vikrant has been asked to explain why disciplinary action should not be initiated against him. ABVP has, meanwhile, come out in Vikrant’s support and accused the university administration of being “biased” in conducting the inquiry. “The proctor has taken deposition of those students into account who were not even present there. Not only the inquiry is biased but even the administration is siding with the left-dominated students union,” Saurabh Sharma, ABVP member and former JNUSU member said.

JNU students and teachers have been agitating against the university administration and Delhi Police for their failure to locate the missing student. The protesting students had even confined the Vice Chancellor and other senior officials in the administrative building for over 20 hours.

Last month, an SIT was formed to trace the missing student on the directive of Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh to Delhi Police Commissioner Alok Kumar Verma. The SIT, headed by Additional DCP-II(South) Manishi Chandra, failed to get any actionable clues in the matter. The case was later transferred to Delhi Police’s Crime Branch.

    Seems like ABVP is much more acting like a Terrorist Organisation creating division among Student Communities

      They should close down JNU This place is producing a bunch of anti nationals and all these anti nationals are of 26. Students normally finish uni at the age of 21 or 22. What are these middle aged men doing at uni at this age?

        What I never understood is the rationale behind elections at Educational and professional centers. What is the necessity to breed these 'Gundas' and 'Gangs' at place of education. lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;Its time we abolish such counter-productive practices. Please request your children to boycott college and university elections. These things don't help nation in any way. Instead, promote compeions on research and innovation.
