A Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) team today 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. 

This is the fourth campus visit by the investigating agency in the last 10 days. The CBI filed a case on June 3 to probe Najeeb's mysterious disappearance.

The team is looking into allegations of a scuffle between Ahmed and Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (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. 

On May 16, the Delhi High Court asked the CBI to probe the case of the first year M.Sc. student.

Najeeb's mother Fatima Nafees recently met CBI officers who are investigating the case. She gave details of the events before 

her son disappeared from his hostel. 

Najeeb, 27, went missing from his JNU hostel on the night of October 14-15 following an alleged altercation with members of the RSS student wing ABVP. The ABVP has denied any involvement in his disappearance.
