The Delhi High Court asked the Central Bureau of Investigation on Thursday to submit its forensic report as soon as possible in the case of disappearance of Jawaharlal Nehru University student Najeeb Ahmed.
The investigating agency on Thursday submitted a status report on the case to the court, ANI reported. The court adjourned the hearing to February 27. The report about a cellphone seized during the raid is still awaited, the CBI said.
On October 15, 2016, Najeeb Ahmed was spotted getting into an autorickshaw on the campus, allegedly after a scuffle at his hostel with activists from the Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad, the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh’s students’ wing. The JNU student has been missing since, and more than a year later, authorities have yet to find him.
In November, the Patiala House Court dismissed the CBI’s plea to conduct lie-detector tests on nine students of Jawaharlal Nehru University, who are suspected to be connected with Ahmed’s disappearance.
