The Polit Bureau of the Communist Party of India (Marxist) has issued the following statement:
The CPI(M) demands immediate action against the Delhi police for its highly condemnable actions against JNU students when male police manhandled and harassed girl students, while equally deplorable was the totally unwarranted action against the grieving mother of the missing student Najeeb who was dragged on the roads and arrested. Instead of launching an urgent and serious search for the missing student, the Delhi police has beaten, harassed and arrested those demanding justice.
The Delhi police is directly under the Central Government. The Police Commissioner has displayed criminal negligence in the case of the missing student. It is shameful that the Home Minister remains silent when such incidents are taking place in the Capital of the country. He should immediately intervene.
