Aligarh, Nov 19: Delhi Police on Saturday are probing into a case after a Mahi-Mandvi hostel received an anonymous letter from someone on November 14 who claims to know about the missing JNU MSc student, Najeeb Ahmed.
Najeeb Ahmed went missing on October 15 following a scuffle allegedly with ABVP members the night before. The day he went missing, Najeeb took an auto from JNU and reached Jamia Millia Islamia campus.
The letter was received by the hostel president Azeem as it was addressed to Najeeb Ahmed. He informed Najeeb's mother Fatima Nafees about the mysterious letter who later handed it over to Crime Branch according to a report in the Times of India.
The letter written by a woman claims that she has information about Najeeb Ahmed's disappearance. The letter also claims that the mysterious woman had seen Najeb Ahmed at a market in Aligarh. Najeeb had managed to flee from where he had been locked down and sought her help. She further mentioned her address where she could be contacted. When the Crime Branch reached to the given address in the letter, no one could be found.
Police said that the letter could be a hoax, but they are going to find out the location from where the letter was dispatched to the JNU hostel. Meanwhile, Jamia Millia Islamia campus has handed over the CCTV footage to the Delhi police.
