March 16, New Delhi: Slamming Delhi Police crime branch for remaining clueless in the vanishing of JNU student Najeeb Ahmed, the Delhi high court on Thursday said police is only “focusing on paper work” and “wasting public money.”

“You are just focusing on paperwork, wasting public money. We want results in the case. Find him (Najeeb) somehow,” the Delhi High Court said.

The hearing on the case has been adjourned for April 10.

Earlier in December last year, the Delhi high court had raised serious doubts over Delhi police’ efforts on finding missing JNU student. The court had asked, how can a man just vanish suddenly from the Campus.

The 27-year-old JNU student has been missing since October 14 last year a day after he had a scuffle with ABVP students.

In a related case yesterday, a lower Delhi court had reserved its decision for March 20 on whether nine JNU suspected students can be asked by Delhi Police for a lie detector test.

The nine students had challenged the notice sent to them by the DP Crime Branch citing “lie detector test is unconstitutional and illegal unless it is voluntary” in their plea.
