Delhi police teams on Monday scanned the JNU campus with sniffer dogs to search for clues that could help them trace student Najeeb Ahmed, who has been missing for over two months now.

The crime branch team which is probing the case after it was transferred to them reached the campus in the morning and the search is currently underway, the police said.

Concerned over disappearance of the JNU student, the Delhi High Court last week directed the police to “scan” the entire campus, including hostels, classrooms and rooftops, by using sniffer dogs.

The directions had come on a Habeas Corpus plea by Najeeb’s mother, Fatima Nafees, who has moved the court to trace her son.

Najeeb went missing on October 15 following an on-campus scuffle, allegedly with ABVP members, the night before. The case was transferred from the south district police to the crime branch last month.
