NEW DELHI: The Delhi Police on Wednesday hiked the award money from Rs 2 lakh to Rs 5 lakh for information about Jawaharlal Nehru University student Najeeb Ahmed, who went missing last month.

"This order will come into force with immediate effect and shall remain good till the case is worked out or the missing person is traced," a police statement said.

"Allout efforts were made to trace the missing student but no clue has surfaced yet," the statement said.

The case was last week transferred from South District Police to the Crime Branch for more intensive probe.

"Police Commissioner Alok Kumar Verma has enhanced the award money to Rs 5 lakh for information about Najeeb Ahmed," Joint Commissioner of Police (Crime Branch) Ravindra Yadav confirmed.

Najeeb, a first year M.Sc. Biotechonoloy student, went missing from the Jawaharlal Nehru University campus on October 15 after a tiff allegedly with members of the RSS-affiliated Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad.
