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. Initial reports suggest that Jain was last seen leaving the campus at around 12.30 pm from the East Gate of JNU. Jain's family had approached JNU authorities after he failed to return home till late in the evening on Monday. In 2016, another student had gone missing from the JNU campus. It may be recalled that Najeeb Ahmed, a first-year student of Jawaharlal Nehru University, went missing after a brawl with members of the Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) at Mahi-Mandavi Hostel in Delhi on October 2016.
