Mother of student Najeeb with JNU students, social activists, and student leaders under the banner of Student Islamic Organisation of India (SIO) stages a protest outside the HRD Ministry demanding justice for the missing JNU student Najeeb Ahmed, on February 22, 2017 in New Delhi.

The Delhi High Court today said "there is complete lack of interest" on the CBI's part in probing the disappearance of JNU student Najeeb Ahmed.

The court had handed over the probe to the CBI five months ago.

A bench of Justices GS Sistani and Chander Shekhar observed that there was "no result either ways. No result even on paper".

The strong remarks by the bench came after contradictions appeared in what the CBI said in court and what it had indicated in its status report on the issue of analysis of the calls and messages of the suspect students in the case.

The court was hearing the plea of the missing student's mother, Fatima Nafees, seeking directions from the court to trace her son who disappeared from Jawaharlal Nehru University's (JNU) Mahi-Mandvi hostel on October 15 last year.
