The Delhi High Court on Tuesday ordered the CBI to take over the investigation into the case of missing JNU student Najeeb Ahmed from Delhi Police.
New Delhi: The Delhi High Court on Tuesday ordered the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) to take over the investigation into the case of missing JNU student Najeeb Ahmed from the Delhi Police.
The high court had earlier rapped the Delhi Police for the delay in recording the statements of the suspects behind the disappearance of Najeeb Ahmad, who has gone missing for over six months.
A Bench of Justices G S Sistani and Rekha Palli transferred the matter to CBI with immediate effect on a plea by the student's mother after the Delhi Police said it has no problem with such a direction.
The court said the probe by the CBI would be supervised by an officer not less than the rank of a DIG.
While transferring the matter, the court noted that the Delhi Police had implemented all directions and suggestions given by the court.
The matter will be taken up next on July 17.
