Something more to Najeeb's disappearance: HC tells police

Press Trust of India  |  New Delhi 

High today sternly asked the city police to "cut across all political barriers" and find missing JNU student Najeeb Ahmed, saying there could be "something more" to his disappearance as no one can just vanish from the heart of the national capital.

Expressing concern over the whereabouts of the student who has remained untraced for 45 days now, the also raised several questions, including why the alleged on-campus scuffle between Najeeb and some members of Akhil Bhartiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) and the injuries sustained by Najeeb was not mentioned in the Police's status report.



A bench of justices G S Sistani and Vinod Goel said if a person disappears from the national capital and remains untraced, then it would create a "sense of insecurity" in the people here and asked the police to explore all angles.

"This is the heart of India, the national capital. No one can just disappear from here. It creates a sense of insecurity in people. If he disappeared, then there is something more to that. All angles have to be explored. 45 days is a long period for someone to be underground," it said to the police which is of the view that Najeeb was "not forcefully abducted".

After perusing the status report of Police, the asked why was Najeeb taken to the Safdarjung Hospital in an ambulance if he had no apparent or visible injuries, as this detail was missing from the police report.

It also asked why the report does not say anything about the alleged on-campus scuffle between Najeeb and some members allegedly of Akhil Bhartiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) who are alleged to have brutally beaten him up and only mentions that the missing student had slapped one of them.

The judge questioned why the police waited till November 11 to interrogate those persons with whom Najeeb allegedly had an altercation on the night of October 14-15, prior to his disappearance on October 15 and against whom a criminal complaint was lodged on October 17.

"Cut across all political barriers. Get him back. You will get your answers at either of the two places, Jamia or JNU. No need to go to Aligarh or any other place so far," the bench told the police, which said that an auto driver has claimed to have dropped off Najeeb at the Jamia Milia Islamia University.
