New Delhi: A CBI team on Monday visited Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) to probe the mysterious disappearance of Najeeb Ahmed, a student who had gone missing from his hostel on October 16, 2016.
The team is looking into allegations of a scuffle between Ahmed and ABVP students in JNU’s Mahi-Mandvi hostel and the circumstances that may have led to it as well as other events that preceded his disappearance.
It is likely to meet the suspects and people whose names have cropped up in the matter, sources said.
Najeeb’s mother Fatima Nafees recently met CBI officers who are investigating the case.
The Delhi High Court on Tuesday transferred the investigation into the disappearance of JNU student Najeeb Ahmad to the CBI from police. He has been missing since October 15, 2016.
Ahmed has been missing since October 15, 2016 after allegedly having an altercation with ABVP members in the hostel.
A bench of Justices G.S. Sistani and Rekha Palli transferred the matter to CBI with immediate effect on a plea by the student’s mother after the Delhi Police said it has no problem with such a direction.
