Meanwhile, Ahmad’s mother met Home Minister Rajnath Singh, who assured all possible help to trace her son.

According to sources, Singh told Fatima Nafees that Delhi Police has set up a special team to pursue the case and that he was personally taking stock of the progress in the probe. “The Home Minister has assured the family of his assistance,” said a source.

SP MP from Badaun Dharmendra Yadav, who accompanied Nafees, said the home minister has assured them that efforts are being made to trace Najeeb at the earliest. “If police are not able to trace him, we will approach the court and raise the issue in Parliament,” Yadav told reporters after the meeting.

Najeeb’s sister, Sadaf, rubbished allegations that he was mentally unstable and said efforts are being made to “defame”him instead of tracing him. “He had cracked the university exams, he is a studious person. Do you think someone studying at such a prestigious institution can be mentally unstable? I request (all) to please not defame him. He had sleeping problems which everyone who is studying often has due to pressure. He had no other problems,” she said.

Najeeb’s mother claimed she had spoken to her son on the night of the alleged brawl and said she was sure he did not leave the campus on his own. “I spoke to him at 11 pm, he wasn’t depressed. He did not go anywhere on his own; he has been kidnapped…,” said Nafees.
