Press Trust of India  |  New Delhi 

Fatima Nafees, mother of missing JNU student Najeeb Ahmad, today staged a protest outside the headquarters here for the second time against the agency's "inefficiency" in finding her son, five months after the case was transferred to it.

It has been a year since Najeeb went missing on October 15.


Fatima, accompanied by relatives and scores of Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) students, in a strongly-worded speech told the security personnel to take off their uniforms and join her in the protest.

"You should remove your uniforms and protest with me if you are sensible, as many of you have sons," she said and warned of a large protest if there was no progress in the case by the next hearing.

"Even if you deploy the entire Police, it would not be enough," she said, adding after the city police, the has proven itself "inefficient".

Najeeb's mother had on August 9 protested in the same venue after the High reprimanded the investigation agency for placing the same status report submitted earlier.

A large number of personnel of Police, Central Reserve Police Force and were deployed to control the crowd that was aggressively trying to breach the barricades to enter the headquarters.

"Neither the Police nor the has taken up the basic investigation protocols in this case," former JNUSU president Akbar Chowdhary said.

Among those present at the protest site were Kanhaiya Kumar and Umar Khalid, who said they would continue the demonstration before the headquarters, until a top official gave them assurance of swift action in the case.
