“If I had one more son younger to Najeeb, I would have sent him to JNU again for Pursuing his studies, said Najeeb’s Mother Fatima Nafees on Sunday while addressing the Students Islamic Organisation (SIO) Telangana state conference.

“They want to threaten us. We won’t fear them”, she added.

“I am a mother. And a mother can never forget her son. I ask again and again. Where is Najeeb?” Fatima Nafees said in an emotional speech.

”After the institutional murder of my son, they speculated whether my son was Dalit or not.” Rohith Vemula’s mother Radhika Vemula said at the conference.

B.G Kolse Pattil – Former Madras High Court Judge, Umar Khalid – JNU student, Jignesh Mevani – Dalit leader and Gujarat MLA, Nahas Mala – Sio National President and Sreerag Poykaadan – students union president of Hyderabad Central University, Abdullah Azzam- former Aligarh Muslim University students union president and Suhail K.K – director of Quill Foundation took part in the session titled Telangana Youth Quake in SIO conference.


It has been two years since Najeeb Ahmed,  a student of MSc Biotechnology, forcefully disappeared from JNU’s Mahi-Mandvi hostel on 15 October 2016, following a physical attack by students who belong to Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP), the previous night. And has not been heard from since.

The case was handed over to the CBI on May 16th, 2017. But CBI on Tuesday told the Delhi High Court that it has decided to file a closure report. The report stated that all the angles have been probed and there is nothing left to investigate further. Fatima Nafees opposed the CBI’s submission and said that the CBI is protecting the accused, allegedly belonging from ABVP.
