- Kanhaiya, others served notice over confinement of university officials
- Officials were held over disappearance of student Najeeb Ahmad
- Najeeb Ahmad has been missing for 40 days, university accused of inaction
A group of agitating students had confined the Vice Chancellor and other senior officials in the administrative building for over 20 hours last month alleging inaction on the administration's part in locating missing student Najeeb Ahmad.
Najeeb, 27, a student of School of Biotechnology and a native of Badaun in Uttar Pradesh, went missing on October 15 following an on-campus fight allegedly with the members of Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad or ABVP, the night before.
"Twenty students including Kanhaiya and Umar have been sent notices over the illegal confinement and have been asked to depose before the Proctorial committee which is probing the issue after a complaint was received from the university's Chief Security Officer," a senior university official said.
JNU students and teachers have been agitating against the university administration and Delhi Police for their failure to locate the missing student.
The case was later transferred to Delhi Police's Crime Branch.
The university panel probing the incident of October 14 following which Najeeb went missing had found ABVP members guilty of assaulting him. However, no disciplinary action has been taken yet.
