A Delhi court has dismissed the plea of nine JNU students in which they had claimed that they cannot be asked by Delhi Police to give their consent for lie detector test in a case relating to varsity’s missing student Najeeb Ahmed.

Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Sumit Dass today summoned all the nine students to appear before it on April 6 in the case, where they will have to state if they are willing to undergo the test or not.

The nine students, who are suspects in the case, had approached the court challenging the Delhi Police’s notice seeking their presence before the magistrate for recording of their statement on Najeeb’s whereabouts.

27-year-old Najeeb has been missing since October 14-15 last year after a scuffle at his JNU hostel the previous night.
