Hundreds of students on Friday held a protest at the CBI headquarters here to demand that the agency trace missing Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) scholar Najeeb Ahmed.
Raising slogans of 'We are Najeeb' and 'Najeeb ko dhoond ke lao', the protestors, mostly from JNU and Jamia Milia Islamia, were also involved in a brief scuffle with police when they tried to get past the barricades at the protest scene.
Ahmed has been missing since October 14-15 night last year after he was allegedly beaten up by Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad supporters at his hostel on the JNU campus.
After the CBI took over the case, it announced a reward of Rs 10 lakh for clues to his whereabouts.
