New Delhi: The Delhi High Court on Friday asked the Delhi Police to file status report on the plea of the mother of the Jawaharlal Nehru University`s missing student Najeeb Ahmed that he be presented by the police and the city government before the court.
A division bench of Justice G.S. Sistani and Justice Vinod Goel asked the police and the Delhi government to file their responses on the habeas corpus plea of Ahmed`s mother, Fatima Nafees.
Ahmed, 27, a first year M.Sc. student, went missing from his JNU hostel on the night of October 14-15, allegedly after an altercation with the members of Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh`s students wing, Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad.
On the basis of the records of the investigation carried out so far, Ahmed`s mother sought criminal prosecution against persons involved in the alleged assault.
Fatima Nafees also sought setting up of a court-appointed Special Investigation Team of officers from outside Delhi to take over the probe from Crime Branch of the Delhi Police.
The Delhi police have already hiked to Rs 5 lakh the reward for any information about Ahmed.
