Missing JNU student Najeeb’s mother, Tabrez Ansari’s wife, Gauri Lankesh’s kin and Subodh Kumar’s wife will march to Amit Shah’s residence with civil rights organisation United Against Hate (UAH), reported The Print.
JNU Najeeb Ahmed went missing about three years back but his mother Fatima Nafees says she cannot stop fighting for justice for her son. She, along with Rajini Singh, wife of the Bulandshahr cop Subodh Kumar who was killed because of a violent incident- held a press conference on October 3, saying that she will march to Home Minister Amit Shah’s residence on October 15. On October 15, 2016, Najeeb had gone missing. He has not been found as yet.
Many people who demand similar justice for their kin will join the march. Shaista, the wife of Tabrez Ansari, who died in mob-violence in Jharkhand, will be marching for her husband. The family members of Gauri Lankesh, the journalist murdered in September 2017, will also take part in this march.
Fatima said the police never took Najeeb’s case seriously. The fact that ABVP members physically assaulted her son just a night before he went missing was never pursued properly by the police, she alleged.
Amid allegations that he was abducted by nine ABVP students, the Delhi Police began probing the case. After they failed to make any headway, the Delhi High Court transferred the case to the CBI in May 2017. But nearly a year and a half after the CBI took the case, the premier investigative agency also said it failed to find any evidence of foul play and filed a closure report in October 2018, reported The Print.
Nadeem Khan, an activist affiliated with civil rights organisation United Against Hate (UAH) said the march to Amit Shah’s home will also include the family of Tabrez Ansari, who was lynched in Jharkhand in June this year, and the kin of Gauri Lankesh, the journalist murdered in September 2017.
Several new organisations had alleged in March 2017 that Najeeb had links with ISIS, or was influenced by the terror outfit.
In fact, despite the police dismissing all such reports, BJP’s Kapil Mishra as recently as last week, posted a disgusting tweet in rebuttal to the AAP Government’s action to compensate Fatima’s loss.
“All my financial savings have been drained, but my child is still not with me,” Fatima said at a press conference at the Press Club in New Delhi on Thursday. Fatima has been leading protests for three years and was also detained in October 2017 by the Delhi Police when she was sitting in protest outside the Delhi High Court.
Fatima Nafees says she refuses to give up the search for her son.
