Chief Minister of New Delhi Arvind Kejriwal called upon the
President of India Pranab Mukherjee yesterday. The meeting was the missing JNU
student and the President promised action after Kejriwal urged him to ask the
central government to step up efforts to trace the missing JNU student.
The JNU student has been missing since last three weeks. Kejriwal
said that “The President had promised to seek a report from the Home Ministry
and the Jawahar Lal Nehru University and assured all support”.
It may be recalled the JNU student Najeeb
Ahmed, went missing from the JNU campus on October 15 after a tussle with the
alleged members of ABVP (Akhil Bharatiya Vidhyarthi Parishad). However ABVP has
denied any involvement in the disappearance of the student.
In a letter written to the President, Kejriwal said that “As
a visitor to the JNU, I sought your intervention in the series of the events that
have happened in the University. Kejriwal said that “He was shocked that the police
didn’t question the students who had attacked Najeeb until November 4th,
The Chief Minister showed concern about the law and order
situation in the national capital.
“Since ABVP students are involved, perception is being built
that the Delhi Police is not taking any action against them. Even the Vice
Chancellor’s role is also problematic”. Kejriwal added. He also accused the VC
of not taking action against the ABVP students.
The police had cracked down the student protest at India
