CBI may give up on Na­jeeb, I won’t, says his mother

The Times of India (New Delhi edition) - - TIMES CITY - @times­group.com

Bareilly: Af­ter me­dia re­ports said that CBI was con­sid­er­ing fil­ing a clo­sure report in the case of miss­ing JNU stu­dent Na­jeeb Ah­mad who dis­ap­peared in Oc­to­ber 2016, his mother, Fa­tima Nafees, said she will not let this case be closed and move the Supreme Court for help.

“We are not sat­is­fied with the CBI in­ves­ti­ga­tion. How can Na­jeeb dis­ap­pear into the thin air? I will not let this case be closed and if need arises, we will move the Supreme Court. The probe agency may give up, but I will con­tinue to fight for my son. I am con­sid­er­ing re­quest­ing the top court to set up an in­de­pen­dent team led by a re­tired judge to trace Na­jeeb,” she told TOI.

Fa­tima, who re­turned to her home in Badaun on Fri­day morn­ing af­ter a court hear­ing in Delhi, said, “When CBI took over the case nearly a year ago, it had promised me that they will safely bring back my son. How­ever, af­ter prob­ing it for a year, the agency is clue­less. We had given names of nine sus­pects who had as­saulted Na­jeeb and only tough ques­tion­ing with them would have helped agency. They were the ones who went to Na­jeeb’s room and had an al­ter­ca­tion with him af­ter which he mys­te­ri­ously dis­ap­peared. No min­is­ter has ever tweeted in our sup­port. I have full faith in ju­di­ciary and I will get jus­tice as law and hu­man­ity are alive in this coun­try. Al­lah will en­sure pun­ish­ment to peo­ple who had taken away Na­jeeb from his mother.”

Though Na­jeeb has been miss­ing for more than one­and-a-half years, Fa­tima said she be­lieves that her son is alive. “My heart says that my son is alive but is kept in cap­tiv­ity. I don’t know when he will re­turn home but I will make all ef­forts to get my son back,’’ she said.

Fa­tima re­it­er­ated that she will drop all cases if her son comes back to her alive. “I have been say­ing it from day one of his dis­ap­pear­ance that I will with­draw the case if Na­jeeb is re­turned to me,” she said.
