Nikita Tomar murder: Tauseef killed her out of ‘revenge’ for an earlier arrest

The chilling visuals of the sensational daylight murder of a 21-year-old college student in Haryana’s Faridabad district on Monday went viral all over the internet. While the accused and his accomplice have been arrested, investigations have unraveled a new angle to the killing other than ‘love jihad’ as alleged by the family. While the preliminary probe revealed that Nikita Tomar had refused Tauseef’s overtures to convert to Islam and marry him, reports now claim that the accused killed her also out of revenge.

Nikita’s family has now said that the boy had been harassing her for several years, so much so that they had to file an FIR against him in 2018. Following this, the police arrested Tauseef, as a result of which he could not complete his medical studies. The girl’s parents were of the opinion that the issue was over after they withdrew the case at the behest of the boy’s pleading parents.

Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar on Tuesday assured strict action against the accused. “The culprit in the Ballabhgarh incident has been arrested. Strict action will be taken against the culprit. No criminal will be spared,” Khattar told media persons in Hisar. The Faridabad Special Investigation Team has revealed that Tauseef used a country-made pistol (Desi Katta) to kill Nikita Tomar and they have recovered the weapon. The i20 vehicle which was used in the crime is registered in the name of one person in Delhi and the police have summoned the owner of the car for questioning.
