A Delhi crime branch team probing the missing JNU student Najeeb Ahmad case reached Bareilly on Thursday and went through records related to death cases registered with the Government Railway Police (GRP) here.

Ahmad, a native of Badaun, went missing from his hostel on JNU campus after October 15.

“We have requested GRP officials to share data of death incidents registered with the railway police. We are searching every avenue where we can find Najeeb,” said Virender Singh, sub-inspector of Delhi Crime Branch.

Over seven incidents of death were reported at Bareilly railway station since October last year. The crime branch team took details of these cases.

Najeeb who joined a biotechnology course in JNU in 2016 allegedly had a scuffle with Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) members on the night of his disappearance from room no. 106 of Mahi Mandavi Hostel of JNU.

Najeeb’s family has repeatedly alleged that ABVP members on JNU campus were involved in his disappearance. “Over 145 days have passed since Najeeb’s disappearance and police are yet to find any clue about him. How many more days will they keep our child away from us,” asked Nafees Ahmad, Najeeb’s father.
