CBI submits report in sealed cover

Najeeb Ahmed case

Najeeb Ahmed case

Najeeb Ahmed's case took several interesting turns in the last one year, with the Delhi Police and the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) on Tuesday reaching a stand-off after the latter rejected formers' claim that Ahmed was last seen boarding an autorickshaw from his hostel and was dropped at the Jamia Milia Islamia (JMI).Ahmed (28), a first year MSc student, had gone missing from JNU's Mahi-Mandvi hostel on October 15 last year, following an alleged scuffle with some members of BJP-affiliate Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP), the previous night.Initially, the Delhi Police had claimed that Ahmed was taking treatment for depression and Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) and his medical condition could be responsible for his disappearance.

In its status report, CBI stated that it has submitted call records of all the accused in the case to the Central Forensic Science Laboratory (CFSL), Chandigarh for analysis and it is waiting for the analysis results.

In its brief order, the bench said, "This court has heard the submission of the learned counsel for the parties". However, CBI's counsel stressed that CBI is under pressure and the nature of the case is sensitive. It reflects further steps taken in the matter.

Submitted in a sealed envelop, the status report also sought some time to complete the investigation, according to sources. "The court doesn't consider it appropriate to discuss the details set out in the status report".

He added that considering the sensitive nature of the case, it would be hard for them if the media reported about it. The report was then handed to senior advocate Colin Gonsalves, counsel for Najeeb's mother Fatima Nafees. The court, however, said the decision would be taken on the next date of hearing, i.e December 21.

On this, the court said:"We can not put unnecessary pressure on the probing agency".

The court was also informed that the CBI plea seeking the consent of the suspect students for a polygraph test was listed for hearing tomorrow before a trial court here.

Over a month after Najeeb went missing, his mother had moved the High Court on November 25, 2016, seeking directions to the police to trace her son.

In August, when CBI failed to file a fresh progress report in the case, the high court had rebuked it, saying the probe was not transferred to the agency "for fun".
