New Delhi [India], Oct 15 (ANI): The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) has filed a closure report in the case of missing Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) student Najeeb Ahmed before Delhi's Patiala House Court.
The Court will consider the report on November 29.
The move comes after the Delhi High Court on October 8 allowed CBI to file the closure report.
The High Court also disposed of the habeas corpus petition filed by Fatima Nafees, mother of Najeeb, saying that she could raise grievances before the trial court where the report has been filed.
However, after the verdict, Nafees told reporters that she will approach the Supreme Court next.
"We are fighting for the last two years but we did not move an inch. I had high hopes from the Court; however, the security agencies have misguided the Court. We'll go to the Supreme Court. All that is happening since last two years is being done under pressure by those sitting in power," she said.
Najeeb went missing under suspicious circumstances on October 15, 2016. It has been alleged that there was an altercation between Najeeb and the students affiliated to the Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) on October 14, 2016, at a JNU hostel. (ANI)
