New Delhi, January 10

A 26-year-old student, pursuing PhD at Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) here, has gone missing from the campus, a police official said.

Mukul Jain, enrolled in Life Sciences course, has been missing since January 8, the official said.

A missing report was registered in the evening of January 8. It is suspected that he was having some problems in his relationship, said a senior police officer from the Southwest District.

Till now, no foul play has been suspected, he added.

Najeeb Ahmed, also a JNU student, went missing from the Mahi-Mandvi hostel of the university on October 15, 2016, following a scuffle with some other students, allegedly affiliated to the Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP), the previous night.

Over a month after the incident, his mother moved the Delhi High Court, seeking directions to the police to trace her son.

The high court last year handed over to the CBI the investigation into the disappearance of Najeeb, a student of MSc in Biotechnology.
