najeeb-mother-cbi Missing JNU student Najeeb's mother argues with the police during a protest by the Students Islamic Organisation of India near CBI headquarters in New Delhi on Friday. PTI

New Delhi: Relatives and friends of missing Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) scholar Najeeb Ahmed spent entire Friday night outside the CBI headquarters here in the hope of getting an answer from the agency regarding his whereabouts.

Ahmed's mother, his sister and his brother and scores of students slept on straw mats spread on the road outside the agency's office and demanded to talk to CBI chief Alok Kumar Verma.

National Students Union of India leader Sunny Dhiman told IANS that Verma did come to meet the protesters but said nothing of substance to provide any hope.

"He consoled Najeeb's mother but was still as clueless as ever about his whereabouts... We hope to get something from it (CBI) when the hearing is due in the case where they are supposed to submit its report. They have been lambasted even previously twice by the court for their slow action," Dhiman, who was at the forefront of the protest, told IANS over phone.

The night vigil was followed a demonstration staged there during the day by hundreds of protesters, some of whom even got into a brief scuffle with the police while trying to get past barricades put in place to stop them from gathering.

Najeeb went missing last October after an altercation with some students belonging to the Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad on the campus. However, the RSS-affiliated student organization has denied any involvement in his disappearance.
