Aligarh: AMU students were brutally caned and assaulted by police as they squatted on railway track demanding the police to clear confusion surrounding JNU student Najeeb Ahmad. The students of Aligarh Muslim University claimed that the Delhi Police have failed miserably to trace the missing JNU student for more than two and half months from the campus of the leading Central University in New Delhi.
Since his disappearance from the university campus, his mother is sitting on dharna along with her other children, demanding reports about his whereabouts.
Reports suggest that a large number of AMU students later courted arrest when police used mild force to foil their attempt to block the movement of trains, and vehicles on main roads. District Magistrate Rajmani Yadav said the exact number of those detained was being ascertained. AMU Students’ Union has already demanded a CBI inquiry into Ahmed’s mysterious disappearance. The students’ union President Faizul Hasan has accused the Modi government of protecting Akhil Bharatiya Vidhyarthi Parishad (ABVP) leaders in this connection.
Reports suggest that the AMUSU has sent a memorandum to the President Pranab Mukherjee demanding action regarding the missing Najeeb. The union in a memorandum sent to President Pranab Mukherjee alleged that instead of trying to trace Ahmed, police were harassing his family and shielding criminals. Ahmed, an MSc Biotechnology student, went missing on October 15 after a scuffle allegedly with ABVP affiliated students at his hostel on the JNU campus.
