New Delhi: Fatima Nafees, mother of Najeeb Ahmed - missing since one year, was on Monday draggedoin road and pulled by Delhi police as she protested along with Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) students demanding that her son be found soon.
Fatima and the protesting students were later detained for protesting outside the Delhi High Court over the disappearance of JNU student Najeeb Ahmed, whose case was being heard there.
A journalist and a JNU scholar are also among those detained by the Delhi police.
It has been a year since Najeeb went missing from his hostel room in JNU after an altercation with Akhil Bhartiya Vidya Parishad (ABVP) students.
Fatima is not well and undergoing medical treatment. She is depressed as is her paralysed husband.
A video, which soon went viral in the social media, showed four to five women police personnel dragging Fatima on the road and forcing her inside the police Gypsy.
Meanwhile, the Delhi high court while hearing the case on Monday pulled up the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) over the manner of its probe, saying “there was complete lack of interest” on part of the agency in pursuing the case.
A bench of justice GS Sistani and justice Chander Shekhar observed that there was “no result either way. No result even on paper”.
The strong remarks came as the bench found contradictions in the Central Bureau of Investigation’s submission in the court and its status report on the issue of analysis of the calls and messages of the suspected students in the case.
The agency’s counsel said the call details records (CDR) of the accused in the case was analysed but the court noted that “it is not mentioned in the status report”.
