The Jawaharlal Nehru University administration on Tuesday denied permission to its student body to hold “Chalo JNU” protest at the varsity campus. The reason for denying the permission, according to the university, was due to the anticipated “unrest and security concerns”, news agency ANI reported.

The JNUSU had planned the protest as a show of solidarity for student Najeeb Ahmed, who went missing from the campus a month ago after a scuffle with an ABVP member. To put pressure on the police and administration, the student union had asked the teachers, university students and locals to participate in the event and gather at Ganga Dhaba, inside the campus.

On October 14, Najeeb Ahmed — a fresher in JNU —  allegedly slapped an ABVP member canvassing for hostel elections and later went missing. Since then, the students, along with Najeeb’s mother and sister, have been protesting at the campus against the alleged police inaction and demanding the arrest of ABVP members.

Further details awaited.

    After a slap, Najeeb was lynched 3 times by the ABVP goons infront of the 3 wardens of the hostel in which the issue took place and security guards appointed there. This injustice is being ignored by the administration as well as the Media.

      Not only in the case of students,anybody found suddenly missing from anywhere in India,there should be a proper investigation. India has not become a banana Republic as yet.

        What is our Govt doing to locate the missing student ? Protests are inevitable. It is not desirable to link every protest to Maoists and stan. Those responsible will be encouraged. lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt; Gora Chatterjee, Pondicherry.

          As per last media reports, he is suspected hiding somewhere in UP or Bihar. He himself might have chosen to go underground. Or first check if he had left for IS.

            He might will never be traced as he might have been killed by the Ultimate Bhakt Goons of running Govt. I seriously doubt the education sted of ABVP students. Have some rationals, Patience towards others views and points, but how can they have when their leaders cant take any rational/questions against him. The police could have solve the case by now by they are also bound by their other duty and responsibility for the (Leaders) they guard all the time.

                        Many students missing, in earlier cases, were found to be hiding in other hostel rooms; not necessary of same college

                            Are these guys in JNU studying or spend their w time playing politics. It is time this University gets closed down so that interested students could be accommodated in other Universities. It is time students stop playing Politics

                              The professors at JNU and university of hyderbad have elements who are worse than Hafees sayeed. They have no respect for the opportunities in front of youths, the professors seem of coerce the students to perform anti government protests in return for stipends. Why is the govt not firing these professors. So what if these would leave an exodus of good professors. It is about facing some inconvenience like the demonetization.

                                  What's the point in holding strikes? How will the management know? Keep Kanhaiya, Umer and Anirban in police custody and question them the filmy way- the truth will come out.

                                      All these persons in photo are old aged , bearded with dirty clothes on body are JNU students paid for each demonstration by Maoist and other anti national elements . There is an estimate that Maoist have about 6000-7ooo crore and they have parallel economy all over India. Many political leaders in India are paid by Maoist and ISI of stan during elections. Government has done great job by demonetisation of 500 and 1000 currency notes.
