Najeeb case: Delhi High Court allows CBI to file closure report

New Delhi: Najeeb Ahmed, does that name ring any bell in your head? Yes, he is the Muslim JNU student who reportedly went missing the very next day from his campus after having a scuffle with ABVP group members at night, on October 15, 2016.

Nowadays, mob killings, attacks on minority community seem to be trending along with becoming a part of majority community with no law and order to hold these perpetrators to account.

The Delhi High Court on Monday has allowed Central Bureau of Investigation to file a closure report in the case related to JNU student Najeeb Ahmed who went missing from the campus nearly two years ago, News18 reported.

Justices S Muralidhar and Vinod Goel allowed the closure report of Najeeb Ahmed case as sought by CBI on September 4.

Earlier the court had reserved its decision on September 4 after hearing the arguments of both sides where Najeeb’s mother had moved the court seeking directions to the police to trace her son.

The case was then transferred to the CBI who have conducted an investigation and said that the CBI does not agree with Najeeb’s mother and said that no offense was committed against the missing person Najeeb.

However, the lawyer appearing for Najeeb’s mother, Fatima Nafees, said that this was a “political case” and that the “CBI has succumbed to the pressure of its masters”.

The CBI has also submitted that the investigation into the case complete and it was probed from all angles.

The CBI further said that the petition may be disposed of by the high court, after which it will file the closure report before the magistrate “and the petitioner may file a protest petition there, if they wish to”.
