The mother of missing JNU student Najeeb Ahmed on Monday met Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, who assured that his government will use all its resources available to help her out. Fatima, accompanied by Ahmed’s relatives and some friends, met Kejriwal at his official residence at Flagstaff road in New Delhi.
Watch what else is making news:
Kejriwal assured that the Delhi government will do whatever was required to help in finding the missing JNU student. Najeeb Ahmed (27), a student of School of Biotechnology and a native of Badaun in Uttar Pradesh, went missing on October 15 following an on-campus brawl allegedly with the members of ABVP, BJP’s students’ wing, the night before. A senior government official said that during the meeting, the Chief Minister told the family that he was with them and would leave no stone unturned in helping them find missing Najeeb.
“I am with you and will do whatever is required to help trace him. It’s a very serious matter and the government will not let you down and use all its resources available to help you out,” Kejriwal said. Fatima had earlier said that she had “lost all faith” in the university administration. Alleging inaction on part of the administration, Jawaharlal Nehru University Students’ Union (JNUSU) has been agitating against Najeeb’s disappearance from campus.
The protesting students had even confined the Vice Chancellor (VC) and other senior officials in the administrative building for over 20 hours last week. Following directives from the Union Home Ministry, Delhi Police formed a special investigation team (SIT) to trace the missing student.
