Delhi High Court allows CBI to file closure report on Najeeb's disappearance

Date : 08/10/2018

In a great blow to the family of the missing Jawaharlal Nehru University Student Najeeb Ahmed along with friends, students, teachers, and citizens who have been fighting to #BringNajeebBack the Delhi High Court, on Monday, October 8th, allowed the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) to file a closure report in the case Najeeb Ahmed.

During the last hearing on September 4th, the CBI had informed the court that it had not found any evidence of Ahmed being assaulted by students belonging to a right wing group a day before he went missing. Colin Gonsalves, founder, HRLN, and the counsel of Najeeb’s mother, had opposed CBI’s submission and criticised the agency for not interrogating the accused under political pressure.

However, the bench of Justices S Muralidhar and Vinod Goel, accepted CBI’s contention, and declined the plea of the missing student’s mother, Fatima Nafees, to constitute a Special Investigation Team (SIT) to monitor the probe.

Najeeb went missing from JNU nearly two years ago after an altercation with a right wing student group. For complete list of developments in Najeeb’s case click here

The Court has allowed Najeeb’s mother to raise her grievances before the trial court when the report is being filed.
