New Delhi [India], Nov. 3 (ANI): Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Thursday threatened to join the protest against the Centre with the Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) students over missing student Najeeb Ahmned.

"They (Delhi Police) don't have courage to go against ABVP. We demand immediate arrest of ABVP members who assaulted Najeeb Ahmed. If students will sit in protest at India Gate then I will also join them," said Kejriwal after attending a solidarity meeting at the JNU campus.

He further alleged that that Delhi Police was defending and protecting Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad ( ABVP) members who assaulted Najeeb a day before he went missing.

Echoing similar sentiments, Congress leader Shashi Tharoor who was also present for the meeting said, "The campus authorities are not capable of resolving the issues, so we have to go outside the campus, which is why I agree with Kejriwal."

Earlier today, Kejriwal lashed out the BJP for polarizing in the name of votes, adding that its leaders were not even loyal to their own blood.

"The BJP does not belong to anyone. They don't even belong to their father. BJP have the greed of power and money, and if needed they will even sell their father," said Kejriwal at a solidarity meeting organised JNU students for the missing student Najeeb Ahmed.

Last month, a student of the School of Biotechnology, Najeeb Ahmed, allegedly went missing following a brawl on the campus the night before.

Till now the police have not been able to find the whereabouts of Najeeb. (ANI)
