NEW DELHI: 200 Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) student protestors and their missing colleague Najeeb Ahmed’s mother were detained on Sunday as they prepared to stage a protest near India Gate against alleged police inaction in the case.
A first-year MSc student, 27-year-old Ahmed went missing from campus on October 15 after getting into an altercation with members of the RSS-backed Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad. There has been no information about Ahmed’s whereabouts so far.
