Najeeb Ahmed, a first-year student of Jawaharlal Nehru University, went missing after a brawl with members of the Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) at Mahi-Mandavi Hostel in Delhi on October 2016. With no word yet on his disappearance, students have taken to staging demonstrations in the Capital ever since his disappearance.

The Delhi High Court has transferred the investigation of the case to the CBI. The High Court disagreed with the allegations of the student’s family that the investigation in the case was “politically motivated” and lacked “integrity”.

Here, we give you a look at the evolution of the case and the stand of various parties involved.
