On November 6, mother of missing Jawaharlal Nehru University student Najeeb Ahmad was detained by Delhi police outside the National Archives of India. Fatima Nafees, along with Najeeb’s cousin and hundreds of students, was taken to different police stations when they were protesting at India Gate.

The haunting photo of a crying Nafees being pulled by the police into the van went viral on social media and millions showed their anger on how the police could treat a mother like that whose son has been missing for the last 24 days. “It has been 24 days and they have not been able to find my son. Instead, they are detaining innocent students. If they had deployed such a huge force to find my son, he would have been found by now,” she said.

On November 7, another picture made its way to the Internet. The picture, clicked by Times of India journalist Yogesh Kumar, showed a female student being held and dragged by a male police officer. The student was protesting along with Najeeb’s family and friends at the spot.

The picture was posted by Delhi Commission of Women Swati Maliwal, who wrote, “Is this Delhi Police? How can this cop grope a female student. Is he out of his mind! Please immediately suspend him. @CPDelhi”. The DCW also sent a notice to the police commissioner Alok Kuma Verma asking for a clarification and action on the misbehaviour of the male cop.

People on social media condemned the act and even demanded the cop’s suspension.

Not just the student in question, JNUSU President Mohit Pandey, who was detained at South Avenue police station, alleged, “We were beaten up. They also accused us of hiding Najeeb. This shows the seriousness of the police.”
