It may be recalled that Najeeb Ahmed, a first-year student of Jawaharlal Nehru University, went missing after a brawl with members of the Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) at Mahi-Mandavi Hostel in Delhi on October 2016.

Over a month after the incident, his mother moved the Delhi High Court, seeking directions to the police to trace her son.
