Members of RSS-affiliate Akhil Bhartiya Vidhyarthi Parishad (ABVP), who were named in the missing Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) student Najeeb Ahmed case, filed a police complaint on Thursday alleging that some students put up posters against them at the University campus.

In their complaint filed at Vasant Kunj police station, students said a section of students were trying to "provoke ill feeling and hatred" against them at the campus. "The posters were unnamed but when we held some people making such posters at Sabarmati hostel last night and requested them not to do that. They started making abusive and casteist comments against us," they said.

"We are students from the schedule castes and this separately qualifies as an atrocity crime under SC/ST Act," the complaint said.

However, students at Sabarmati hostel denied the changes and said some students were putting up, 'Where is Najeeb' posters as part of their campaign against the administration's failure to find him. Ahmed, a Masters student had gone missing under mysterious circumstances in October, 2016.

"The ABVP members came there and threatened the students," a second-year-student said.

Despite several attempts, JNU VC and the Registrar did not respond for a comment on the issue.
