Attempts were made to kill JNU student Najeeb Ahmed, who has been missing from campus since a week, a fellow student who was present when he had a brawl with few ABVP supporters, has claimed. A student of School of Biotechnology, Najeeb Ahmed, went missing on last Saturday following a brawl on the campus allegedly with members of ABVP, the night before. An FIR for kidnapping and wrongfully confining a person was lodged at Vasant Kunj North police station after the police received a complaint from the student’s guardians.

“I heard some noises from the first floor. When I rushed down I saw Najeeb was bleeding from the mouth and nose. We called the warden and took Najeeb to help him wash himself in the bathroom.

“But few students came and thrashed Najeeb inside the bathroom. They were shouting that he should not be spared,” said Shahid Raza Khan, an M Phil student at JNU’s School of International Studies (SIS).

The ABVP, however, rubbished the allegations as baseless.

“If he was beaten up that badly, why did not the warden get a medical test conducted. Where are the reports? There are none because he wasn’t attacked,” Alok Singh, President of JNU’s ABVP unit said.

The incident has led the campus to be on boil yet again with the agitating students keeping Vice Chancellor M Jagadesh Kumar and other senior officials under siege for over 20 hours alleging inaction on the administration’s part.

Following protests by students, Home Minister Rajnath Singh had directed Delhi Police to set up a Special Investigating Team (SIT) to trace the missing student.

Meanwhile, the left affiliated All India Students Association (AISA) which is running a campaign “Bring back Najeeb”, staged a protest at Delhi University today.

“From Muzaffarnagar to Dadri and now JNU we are witnessing a clear pattern in the intimidation, violence and the creation of a vicious atmosphere followed by displacement and disappearances of Muslims throughout the country. This has to be resisted tooth and nail,” said AISA leader Kawalpreet Kaur.

              Attempt are being made by 'some secular JNU students to demonize BJP/RSS. The real demons are these students themselves.

                  The ABVP seems to be made up of dedicated persons who believe they can actually change things ! Don't think any other set of students , would have the guts to challenge this snake pit of leftist naxalites who constantly team up with minorities (ex muslims) and feminists who might have a score to settle with "the world". No one in the left gives a rats to their causes. They just want these groups so that they can help create a ruckus, As a result JNU festers animosity contempt and malice towards the world at large and ends up making a hero of everyone who may otherwise even be a proven criminal. A missing person is but the expected from JNU. Why blame ABVP when you are taught to live by the sword, as soon as you are identified to be a muslim, dalit, or feminist by your so called teachers. These students are wasting their lives , all for these horrible teachers....
