New Delhi, Mar 21: In the latest turn of events, a report of the browsing history of Najeeb Ahmad’s laptop received by Delhi Police has revealed that months before the disappearance, Najeeb had been searching on the Islamic State (IS) ideology, network and executions. The police have now started to investigate the disappearance case with the details of the browsing history of Najeeb.
As per reported by The Times Of India, Najeeb’s Google searches included ways of joining IS. The report further states that the browsing history of Najeeb’s YouTube consisted of videos related to IS. The Delhi police have submitted the browsing details in the Delhi High Court. The police have also claimed that before the scuffle with Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) members, Najeeb was watching a speech of an IS leader.
The police are now investigating the possibility of Najeeb joining the IS and being lured away via Nepal. Police have also put up posters with Najeeb’s photograph in several areas of Nepal close to Uttar Pradesh.
Decision on polygraph test on March 27
The Delhi court on Monday stated that on March 27, the Court will decide whether nine Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) students can be asked by the Delhi Police to give their consent for lie detector test.
The nine students, who are suspects in the case approached the court challenging the notice sent to them by the Crime Branch of Delhi Police asking them to be present before the magistrate for recording the statement that whether they are willing to undergo the lie detector test.
The Court on March 15 reserved its order after the counsel appearing for the nine students stated that “lie detector test is unconstitutional and illegal unless it is voluntary.” The Court was supposed to submit its report on Monday but the Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Sumit Dass deferred the matter to March 27 stating that the order is not yet ready.
Najeeb Ahmad, an MSc Biotechnology student, went missing on October 15 after a scuffle with the alleged ABVP affiliated students at his hostel on the JNU campus.
