New Delhi: The Delhi Police on Tuesday refuted reports which claimed that missing Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) student Najeeb Ahmad was finding information about terror group Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIS) on his laptop prior to his disappearance.

Police have submitted the new details before the Delhi High Court, reported the daily.
"The report that came out in today`s newspaper from Google and YouTube, police has not received any such report. Any association with the ISIS has not come up in Delhi Police`s investigation. With the content of the first para of the newspaper report, there is no submission of the honorable court by the Delhi Police so far in the investigation," he said.
