The Crime Branch team that is probing the case after it was transferred to them reached the campus this morning with sniffer dogs and the search is currently underway, police said.
Concerned over disappearance of the JNU student, Delhi High Court had last week directed police to “scan” the entire campus, including hostels, classrooms and rooftops, of the varsity by using sniffer dogs.
The directions had come on a Habeas Corpus plea by Najeeb’s mother, Fatima Nafees, who has moved 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 South District Police to Crime Branch last month.
