The student was a resident of Ghaziabad and a first year student in Integrated MPhil and PhD in Life Sciences according to India Today.

This disappearance comes even as the search for another JNU student Najeeb Ahmed continues. Najeeb, 27, a student of MSc Biotechnology, had gone missing from the Mahi-Mandvi hostel of the university on 15 October, 2016 following a scuffle with some other students, allegedly affiliated to the Sangh Parivar student wing Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP).

The case was later taken up by the CBI who announced a reward of Rs 10 lakh for anyone giving Najeeb's whereabouts.
