SIO demands probe into Najeeb’s disappearance

New Delhi: The Students Islamic Organisation of India (SIO) on Saturday demanded a judicial probe into the disappearance of Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) student Najeeb Ahmed.

Ahmed has been missing for the past four months after a scuffle with the members of Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP).

“The SIO has submitted a memorandum to Ministry of Human Resource Development, demanding immediate enquiry into the matter and every possible effort to search this missing student and send a message of safety and security for students in education institutions,” SIO President Nahas Mala said in a statement.

The SIO has also demanded that the JNU authorities and Delhi Police should be more responsive and should raise the hope of his mother regarding his comeback and ensure justice to him.

“We also demand a Judicial probe into the matter must be initiated and give immediate relief to Najeeb’s ailing mother Fathima Nafees,” said Mala.

“Delay in the case and denying information could institute things to make the case lose its steam, is a perception of his mother and students,” he said.

Mala also said that the counsel appearing in the case is being labelled as Fundamentalist supporter, who is wrongly supporting the cause.

“Various ridiculed and discriminated attempts are being done with Muslim students, which must be curbed by strong means,” he added.

The SIO has collected almost 2.5 million signatures from across the nation that they will submit to the National Commission for Minorities, he said.
