Missing JNU Student Case: Enquiry finds ABVP member guilty of assault


ABVP member Vikrant Kumar has been found guilty of assaulting Najeeb Ahmed during a brawl following which the latter went missing over a month ago during a  proctorial enquiry by JNU.

27-year-old Najeeb a MSc first-year student of School of Biotechnology, was a native of Badaun in Uttar Pradesh. On October 15, Najeeb reportedly had an on-campus brawl with the ABVP members, the night before he disappeared.

JNU had requested a proctorial enquiry into the episode.

“In the proctorial enquiry, Vikrant Kumar has been observed to be required in hitting Najeeb Ahmed and utilizing slanderous dialect with provocative conduct on October 14. This is a demonstration of indiscipline and crime,” an official request read.


Vikrant has been asked to clarify for what valid reason disciplinary activity ought not be started against him.

ABVP has, in the interim, turn out in Vikrant’s support and blamed the college organization for being “one-sided” in directing the enquiry.

“The delegate has considered testimony of those understudies who were not in any case show there. The enquiry is one-sided as well as even the organization is agreeing with the left-commanded understudies union,” Saurabh Sharma, ABVP part and previous JNUSU part said.


JNU understudies and educators have been fomenting against the college organization and Delhi Police for their inability to find the missing understudy.

The challenging understudies had even kept the Vice Chancellor and other senior authorities in the managerial working for more than 20 hours.


A month ago, a SIT was shaped to follow the missing understudy on the mandate of Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh to Delhi Police Commissioner Alok Kumar Verma.

The SIT, headed by Additional DCP-II(South) Manishi Chandra, neglected to get any noteworthy pieces of information in the matter.

The case was later exchanged to Delhi Police’s Crime Branch.

Delhi Police have reported a reward of Rs 5 lakh for giving data about Najeeb Ahmed. Prior, the reward sum was Rs 2 lakh.
