Seven of these students appeared before Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Deepak Sherawat in pursuance to the summons issued against them while the remaining two were represented by their counsel.

The court was hearing the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) plea for recording the consent of these nine students for lie-detection test regarding the disappearance of Ahmed on 15 October last year.

Ahmed, 27, an MSc first-year student, went missing after a fight with alleged members of Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh(RSS)-affiliated Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP), with the student body denying any involvement.
