A PhD scholar from the Indira Gandhi National Open University (IGNOU) has allegedly gone missing from the Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) leaving shock ripples across the campus. However, giving in to his family's pressure, Jain ended the relationship recently, and was upset over it.

The Delhi Police has launched a manhunt in search of Jain, who was last spotted in the SLS lab around 12:30 PM on Monday. "We have been in touch with police since Monday night", said Jain's elder sister Shilpi.

Till now, no foul play has been suspected. He used to visit lab number 408 at the school for his research goal and was last seen leaving the campus on Monday. After seeing the CCTV footage, the family members registered a case at Vasant Vihar police station. The student is not registered with JNU but works under a co-guide here.

His family has told police that he was last seen exiting the JNU east gate on Monday around 12.30 pm, according to the CCTV footage provided to them by the university. His phone and other belongings were found in the laboratory where he used to work.

Jain was not a regular student of JNU and it is unlikely that he had a problem with someone, said a senior police officer. "We have shared his professor's number also so that if anybody has any information he or she can pass it", said JNUSU president Gita.

Previously, a first-year student of JNU Najeeb Ahmed had gone missing after a brawl with Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) members in October 2016.
