Missing JNU student Najeeb Ahmed was searching Internet for ISIS before disappearance?

New Delhi: In a shocking twist to the disappearance case of Najeeb Ahmad, it is now being said that the Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) student had been looking for information on the Islamic State (IS) before going missing in October.

An article in The Times of India said that the Delhi Police has received a report on the browsing history of Najeeb's laptop from Google and YouTube.

The report received by the Delhi Police has revealed that in the months before his disappearance, Najeeb had been searching for information on ISIS and the terror group's ideology, executions, and network.

The daily quoted sources as saying that most of the videos the JNU student watched on YouTube were also connected with the Islamic State. He searched on Google, inter alia, the ways to join ISIS.

Police have submitted the new details before the Delhi High Court, which had on March 16 slammed the Crime Branch for its failure to find missing JNU student Najeeb Ahmed even after a lapse of five months.

Najeeb, 27, an M.Sc. First Year student, went missing from his JNU hostel on October 14-15 night, allegedly after a row with members of RSS` student wing Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP).

The Delhi Police has claimed that Najeeb was watching a video of the speech of an IS leader on the night of October 14, just before he entered into a brawl with ABVP members. He went missing the next morning before being caught on CCTV boarding an autorickshaw, reported the daily.


Probing the radicalisation angle, police have pasted posters with Najeeb's photograph in many areas of Nepal.

The ABVP has denied any involvement in his disappearance.
