In recent development in the missing JNU student case, the Patiala House Court on Monday to hear the students’ plea against the police move to conduct lie detector test on them. Earlier the Delhi Police has asked the students to under-go a lie detector test, as many as 90 students have opposed this test.

Najeeb Ahmed, a student of Jawaharlal Nehru University, New Delhi. Najeeb has been has been missing from the campus since 15 October 2016 after a row with members of RSS student wing Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP). He was a  first year M.Sc Biotechnology student.

Earlier in February, the Delhi Police was forced to appear before the Delhi High Court over their slow progress in the case. It was directed to explore other prospects of investigation like polygraph test of other persons connected with the disappearance of Ahmed as all other leads in this case have not yielded any good result.

“The student had gone missing in October 2016; it is February now. Nearly four months have gone by and none of the leads are going anywhere. We asked for a polygraph test as the other leads have not yielded any results,” the court observed.

The HC was hearing an application from one of the nine students who are suspects in the case. The application had alleged that by means of the investigation orders, the court was regulating the manner of investigation which was prejudicing the probe and violating their rights under Articles 21 and 22 of the Constitution.

 

The applicant also challenged the Delhi Police regarding the lie-detector test. The Delhi Government’s counsel opposed the application, stating that the same student had moved a similar plea through another lawyer earlier and the High Court on January 23 disposed it off by asking the student to come forward.

Earlier, the Delhi Police had conveyed to the high court that it has not been able to carry out lie-detector tests on nine “suspect” students, as none of them responded despite multiple notices.
