[New Delhi]JNU Enquiry Says,Yes ABVP Member Vikrant Assaulted Najeeb
A proctorial enquiry by JNU has found ABVP member Vikrant Kumar guilty of assaulting Najeeb Ahmed during a brawl following which the latter went missing over a month ago.
Najeeb (27), a student of School of Biotechnology and a native of Badaun in Uttar Pradesh, went missing on October 15 following an on-campus scuffle allegedly with the members of ABVP, including Vikrant, the night before.
JNU had ordered a proctorial enquiry into the incident.
Vikrant has been asked to explain why disciplinary action should not be initiated against him.
ABVP has, meanwhile, come out in Vikrant’s support and accused the university administration of being “biased” in conducting the enquiry.
JNU students and teachers have been agitating against the university administration and Delhi Police for their failure to locate the missing student.
The protesting students had even confined the Vice Chancellor and other senior officials in the administrative building for over 20 hours.
Last month, an SIT was formed to trace the missing student on the directive of Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh to Delhi Police Commissioner Alok Kumar Verma.
The SIT, headed by Additional DCP-II(South) Manishi Chandra, failed to get any actionable clues in the matter.
The case was later transferred to Delhi Police’s Crime Branch.
