Mukul Jain was last seen leaving the JNU campus at around 12.30 pm from the East Gate.

A PhD scholar from JNU’s School of Life Sciences has been reported missing since Tuesday noon. Identified as Mukul Jain, the PhD scholar was last seen leaving the JNU campus at around 12.30 pm from the East Gate. The university appealed to people with information about his whereabouts to come forward and contact its security staff.

Delhi Police, however, claimed that the student was not enrolled with the university. He was part of IGNOU and used to visit his research guide at JNU, police said.

A missing report was registered on the evening of January 8. It is suspected that he was having some problems in his relationship, said a senior police officer from the South-west District told PTI.

In 2016, a first-year JNU student, Najeeb Ahmed, went missing from the campus hostel after a scuffle with alleged members of the ABVP. After Delhi Police failed to trace his whereabouts, the case was transferred to the CBI.

This is a developing story. More updates to follow.

      Got to hear so many missing cases nowadays. Instead of fighting for which religion he belongs to actually. Just pray with ur sincere heart so that evryone return safe to their home where the loved ones are waiting. Spread love and harmony. Be safe and keep ur loved ones safe too.
