The Chief Minister said he sought the President’s intervention regarding Najeeb Ahmed, who went missing from the Jawaharlal Nehru University on October 15 after a tiff with alleged members of the BJP-affiliated Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP). The ABVP has denied any involvement in his disappearance.
