Another student goes missing from JNU campus

JNU, Campus

A research scholar pursuing his PhD from the Indira Gandhi National Open University (IGNOU) has allegedly gone missing from the Jawaharlal Nehru University campus, police said on Wednesday. Mukul Jain, who is pursuing his research under a guide from IGNOU and a co-guide from JNU’s School of Life Sciences, was last seen on Monday. Jain used a laboratory at the JNU for his research.

“We have spoken to the family of the missing student but they have not been able to provide much information,” said DCP (South West) Milind Mahadeo Dumbere. A complaint has been filed at Vasant Kunj police station. Police said Jain was allegedly upset over some differences that had cropped up between him and a woman who he had recently befriended.

“We have been told that he wanted to confront the woman but was unable to contact her when he was last seen on the campus and spoke to his friends,” said an investigator who did not wish to be named as he is not authorised to speak to the media. CCTV footage shows Jain leaving the campus from the university’s east gate on Monday at around 12.30 pm. JNU’s chief security officer Naveen Yadav said the student’s family visited the campus on Tuesday and were shown the CCTV recordings.

“The student is not registered with JNU but works under a co-guide here. The family was shown the footage in which he was seen leaving the campus on foot. We have not registered a (police) complaint yet as the family has already registered it,” Yadav said. PTI
