According to his friend's witness, Mukul was last seen leaving the JNU campus around 12.30 pm from the East Gate. "We have not registered a (police) complaint yet as the family has already registered it", Naveen Yadav, chief security officer of JNU, said.
A similar incident was reported from the JNU campus on October 15, 2016, when an MSc student Najeeb Ahmed had mysteriously gone missing from its Mahi Mandvi hostel following a scuffle with members of RSS-backed ABVP, a night before.
Family members approached the police on Monday evening after Jain could not be traced.
When Jain left the JNU SLS lab around 12:30 PM he left his mobile phone and wallet in the lab itself. The family was shown the footage in which he was seen leaving the campus on foot.
Dennis Kucinich to join Democrat primary for OH governor
Dennis Kucinich (D-Ohio) is throwing his hat into the ring for OH governor, joining six other Democrats vying for the seat. Most of the attention on the Democratic side of the race to succeed term-limited Republican Gov.
"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. University sources say that Jain worked under professor Shweta Saran to complete his PhD, which he has been pursuing since 2012. He lived with his mother in a rented home in Ghaziabad following the demise of his father. Our anxiety has grown because concocted stories about him are being spread ever since he went missing.
The JNU Students' Union met JNU administration and Police regarding the matter and have requested everyone to be more vigilant.
Police, however, said that Jain was allegedly upset due to some differences with a female friend for the last few days.
