Rs 10 lakh reward for inputs on missing JNU student

Almost a year after he mysteriously went missing after a scuffle with some ABVP activists, the CBI on Sunday announced Rs 10 lakh reward to those who can help trace Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) student Najeeb Ahmed.

The agency had taken over the case on June 2 this year following a Delhi High Court order on a petition that Delhi Police’s investigation into the missing case was not in the right direction.

“ Any person who may give information of the present whereabouts of Najeeb Ahmed, will be given a cash reward of Rs 10 lakh. The name and identity of the informant will be kept secret,” a CBI notice said.

Those who have information can approach the CBI office in CGO complex on Delhi’s Lodhi Road or telephone 011-24368641/38/37 as well as 09650394796/91.

Najeeb (27) was a MSc Biotechnology student and was staying in Mahi hostel on JNU campus. He went missing after he entered into a scuffle with three suspected ABVP members on the night of October 14, 2016.

His missing had triggered protests by students unions, his parents and others demanding the action against suspected ABVP members for abducting Najeeb.

Before transferring the case, the high court had rapped the police over the manner of its probe, saying it appeared to be looking for an escape route. It said that their action showed police were trying to sensationalise the matter or looking for a way out as it was filing reports in sealed covers though nothing confidential, damaging or crucial in them.
