JNU student goes missing from campus, Delhi police begins investigation

Following series of missing, JNU PhD scholar Mukul Jain nowhere to be found

According to police, Mukul Jain, enrolled in IGNOU's Life Sciences course, has been missing since January 8. Jain's co-guide, Professor Shweta Saran confirmed that he was registered with IGNOU's life science department and used to visit the university to work in the lab. In the meantime, Jain's brother tried calling him, but his phone went unanswered.

Mukul Jain had reportedly gone missing from Jawaharlal Nehru University campus on Tuesday. "The family was shown the footage in which he was seen leaving the campus on foot", said a senior officer.

Police ruled out kidnapping angle in the case. Typically, Jain would commute from Ghaziabad to the JNU campus in South Delhi on a daily basis. He used to return home by 9pm daily. "Students at JNU refused to talk to us citing some protocol when we asked them about his whereabouts", his brother-in-law Ankush Jain told TOI.

Boca president responds to reports of £27m Arsenal move for star man
TyC Sports claim Arsene Wenger is prepared to trigger the forward's £27m release clause within the next few hours. Arsenal may have chosen the replacement for Alexis Sanchez , but it's not the huge name some fans perhaps expect.

Family members said that Jain was not a regular student at the university and it was unlikely that he could have fallen out with someone. "Jain was focused on his research work". We do not know if he was in a relationship with any woman, as alleged. "I was informed about the case by the guide that the student has gone missing".

Police, however, said that Jain was allegedly upset due to some differences with a female friend for the last few days.

The JNU Students' Union met JNU administration and Police regarding the matter and have requested everyone to be more vigilant. "He is not a registered student with JNU".
