Delhi Police, on 16 November, claimed that they have traced down the auto-driver who picked up missing JNU student Najeeb Ahmed from JNU campus and took him to Jamia Millia Islamia.
A leading daily quoted Joint Commissioner of Police, Ravindra Yadav as saying, "We have traced the driver of the auto-rickshaw who Ahmed hired on October 15 from Jawaharlal Nehru University to reach the campus of Jamia Millia Islamia."
