JNU missing student Najeeb Ahmed: Court defers hearing on CBI plea
NEW DELHI: A court here on Friday deferred the hearing on the CBI's plea seeking consent for a lie detector test of nine students in connection with the case of the missing JNU student Najeeb Ahmed.
As the concerned judge was on leave, the court listed the matter for November 13 for further hearing.
The court had in the last hearing allowed the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) plea seeking early hearing on the application seeking consent of nine students for a lie detector test.
The CBI plea came after the Delhi High Court asked the probe agency to seek an early hearing in the trial court, which had earlier adjourned the matter to January 2018.
Ahmed, 27, an MSc first year student at Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU), went missing on October 15 last year after a fight with alleged members of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh-affiliated Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP).
The student body, however, denied any involvement.
