The CBI lodged the FIR on Friday after the Delhi High Court on 16 May handed over the Ahmad case from the Delhi Police Crime Branch to the CBI.

Najeeb, 27, a first year student, has not been traced since he went missing from his JNU hostel on the night of 14-15 October, allegedly after a row with members of the RSS' students wing ABVP.

The ABVP has denied any involvement in his disappearance.

The high court had transferred the case to the CBI after the Delhi police said it has carried out the investigation in a fair manner searching for Ahmad across India, but had no success.

The court's direction came while hearing a habeas corpus plea filed by Fatima Nafees, Ahmad's mother, that her son be produced by the police and the Delhi government before the court.
