CBI closes case of missing JNU student Najeeb Ahmad

Case related to missing JNU student Najeeb Ahmad has been closed by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI), as the agency's efforts to trace him have yielded no results, officials said on Monday, adding the report by the agency was submitted in Patiala House court after it got permission from the Delhi High Court.

The court is likely to hear the matter on November 29, they said. 

The CBI had begun their probe in May last year.

The agency, while taking permission of the Delhi High Court to close the case, had said all aspects were looked into but it could not find any trace of an offence.

JNU student Najeeb Ahmad had gone missing from the Mahi-Mandvi hostel of the university on October 15, 2016.

He was reported missing following a scuffle the previous night with some students allegedly affiliated to the Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP).

The agency had announced a reward of Rs 10 lakh for anyone giving information about Najeeb and informed police chiefs of all state police in the country, they said.

Teams were immediately dispatched to Maharashtra, Himachal Pradesh and Delhi after it had received some inputs, but to no avail, the officials said.

A thorough check on unidentified bodies was carried by the CBI, in addition to pasting Najeeb's photograph on toll stations seeking information about him. The efforts however, did not end in any positive results, they said.
