DCW issues notice to Delhi Police over misbehavior with female student
New Delhi (India), Nov. 7 (ANI): The Delhi Commission for Women (DCW) on Monday issued a notice to the Delhi Police over a complaint alleging physical abuse on a female student by an officer during protest for the missing JNU student Najeeb Ahmed.

The Women's Commission has asked the Delhi Police to reply to the notice within 72 hours, failing which action as per law will be initiated.

The Delhi Police on Sunday detained the students of Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU), who were staging protest against the authorities at the India Gate for not taking firm steps to locate their missing colleague Najeeb Ahmed.

Najeeb's sister Sadaf Mosharraf, who was also among those detained by the police, vented her ire at the men in uniform.

"We were protesting very peacefully but the Delhi Police detained us without any reason," she said.

Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Sunday alleged that the Centre was adopting 'dictatorship' policy and violating the constitutional right of an individual by adopting such measures.

Commenting on the Delhi Police's move to summon nine people in connection with this case, Kejriwal said that the men in uniform have just done a formality in the name of investigation.

Earlier that day, Kejriwal met President Pranab Mukherjee to seek his intervention into the matter.

Speaking to the media after meeting with the President, Kejriwal pinned the blame on Delhi Police, accusing them of refusing to take action after coming under political pressure.

The Chief Minister further said that President Mukherjee had assured him of seeking a report both from the JNU administration and the Delhi Police as well.

Najeeb went missing on the intervening night of October 14 and 15 after allegedly being beaten up by a mob of 20 students comprising of the ABVP members, who had gone campaigning to his room for hostel elections. (ANI)
