Family members of missing JNU student Najeeb Ahmed on Sunday met Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav who assured them that a team will be formed to trace him.

“Family members of Najeeb Ahmed met CM Akhilesh at his residence with JNU students’ union President Mohit Pandey. They requested the CM to trace Najeeb,” an official release issued in Lucknow said.

The CM assured that a team will be constituted to find Najeeb and said he would also write to Centre in this regard, the release said. Najeeb (27), a student of School of Biotechnology and a native of Budaun in Uttar Pradesh, went missing on October 15 following a scuffle allegedly with the members of ABVP, BJP’s students’ wing the night before in the campus.

Meanwhile, a guard at JNU’s Mahi Mandavi Hostel where Najeeb was staying had received a letter a few days ago which stated that the student was being held captive in Aligarh. However, on verification, the letter was found to be bogus.
