CBI reaches JNU to probe Najeeb’s disappearance
A CBI team visited Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) on Monday to probe the disappearance of Najeeb Ahmed, a student who had gone missing from his hostel since last October.
The team is looking into allegations of a scuffle between Ahmed and ABVP students in the university’s Mahi-Mandvi hostel and the circumstances that may have led to his disappearance.
Najeeb’s mother Fatima Nafees recently met the CBI officers and gave details of the events before her son disappeared.
Najeeb had returned to the university on October 13, 2016 after a holiday. On the intervening night of October 15-16, he called his mother to tell her that something was wrong. His roommate later told Fatima he had been injured in a fight, she had said. Then, Fatima left for Delhi from Bulandshahr.
She spoke to him over the phone and asked him to meet her at the hotel. She said there was no trace of Najeeb when she reached his room in Mahi Hostel room 106. PTI
