Najeeb’s roommate to undergo polygraph test today, others get notice
Najeeb Ahmed’s roommate Kazim would undergo a lie detector test on Thursday in an attempt to get more information about the missing student. The Delhi Police Crime Branch received the consent a week ago and now is preparing for the polygraph test.
Also, the Delhi Police have written to the other students as well who were allegedly involved in a scuffle with Najeeb after which the boy went missing. Sources in Delhi Police say that the cops have written to other students in the campus who the family suspect have a role in the disappearance of Najeeb. Most of them are on holidays. The cops are waiting for their consent and would decide after they receive their nod for the lie detector test.
Najeeb allegedly had an altercation and scuffle with some ABVP students in Mahi-Mandavi hostel, soon after which, he went missing on October 15.
Earlier, 600-plus men of Delhi Police scanned the whole JNU campus with mounted police and sniffer dogs for two days. In a first-of-its-kind operation, the cops were seen scanning the room of the biotech student Najeeb with sniffer dogs and places like the Ridge area were thoroughly scanned. The cops even searched the rooftops of the hostels and every possible place where they suspected of finding any clue.
However, no trace of the missing student Najeeb was found despite the extensive effort that the police put in.
“Since it is a sensitive case, we might not share the operational details of other efforts we are putting in to trace Najeeb. It might hamper the investigation and also endanger the security of the missing person,” said Joint CP Crime Ravinder Yadav. The Delhi Police are following directives from the Delhi high court which has instructed the cops to conduct a lie detector test on various persons to get some clue. The court has also requested Forensic Science Laboratory, Rohini to provide the result of the test as early as possible.
The directions came on the habeas corpus plea by Najeeb’s mother, Fatima Nafees, who has moved court to trace her son. The Delhi Police have already raised the cash reward to Rs 10 lakh for providing any clue that could lead the cops to trace Najeeb.
