New Delhi: Delhi Police on Wednesday announced a cash reward of Rs. 50,000 after Jawahar Lal Nehru (JNU) student Najeeb Ahmed had been missing for five days.
Police issued an order on Wednesday night stating that any clue or information regarding Najeeb Ahmed could be given to the Station House Officer (SHO) of Vasant Kunj North police station. The order also stated that a cash reward of Rs. 50,000 will be given to the one who provides any information about Ahmed’s whereabouts.
Ahmed went missing on October 15 night from the university hostel Mahi-Mandvi after a brawl with ABVP students.
A police complaint was filed under section 365 of Indian Penal Code (IPC) for kidnapping or abducting with intent secretly and wrongfully to confine a person, and a proctorial inquiry was also initiated by the varsity.
On Wednesday, JNU students had staged protests outside the administrative block of the varsity forcing top officials, including the Vice Chancellor to stay confined in their offices.
Hundreds of protesting students are still holding the VC, Proctor and Registrar hostage, while employees are allowed to carry out the daily duties.
Carrying photos of Ahmed, JNU students went about in the neighbourhood inquiring about him.
They have also pasted “missing posters” in areas around JNU and on various roads leading to the university.
