JNU Students form Human Chain in Protest, Search for Najeeb Ahmad Desperate

24 Oct 2016

A student of School of Biotechnology, Najeeb Ahmed, allegedly went missing on last Saturday following a brawl on the campus allegedly with members of ABVP, the night before.

JNU Students Union which had last week kept Vice Chancellor M Jagadesh Kumar and other university officials under siege for over 20 hours alleging inaction on the administration’s part, today formed a human chain till VC’s residence.

“Agitating students.. please understand, by shouting slogans and blocking entrance to my residence, we cannot trace Najeeb. We are doing all we can to trace the missing JNU student Najeeb Ahmed. Now, agitating students have blocked entrance to my residence (sic),” he tweeted.
 
Kumar who had earlier warned students of strict action if they resorted to “unlawful” means of protest also said that it started with a human chain from JNU Admin block but then there was a huge gathering of shouting students at the entrance of his residence.

“Repeated appeals to cooperate and not agitate have fallen on deaf ears of student agitators. This is unfortunate,” he said in another tweet.

JNUSU denied the claim that VC residence was “gheraoed” as it a human chain which culminated at the VC house where Najeeb’s family, friends and two teachers spoke.

“He is lying through his teeth. First of all, he should be tweeting about Najeeb and not about himself. This is a highly megalomaniac tendency, just like Modi, to claim victimhood for himself whereas the only victim is Najeeb. The VC should stop seeking undue sympathy,” JNUSU president Mohit Pandey said.

Earlier in the day, the university released two statements appealing to the JNU community and JNUSU to extend support in finding the missing student.

“The Administration’s concerns are rising by the day with no credible information available about the whereabouts of Najeeb Ahmed. The Vice-Chancellor of JNU is meeting the Police Commissioner on Monday morning in this regard,” a statement from the university said.

It also said, “the ethos, norms, and peaceful methods of resolving issues within the university are at stake because of reported attempts by some vested interests to give it a communal colour”.
