Amid the nationwide outrage following the brutal murder of Nikita Tomar, it has been revealed that accused Tauseef is the cousin of Congress’s Nuh MLA Aftab Ahmed.
21-year-old Nikita was shot at point-blank range by Tauseef outside Faridabad’s Aggrawal College on Monday afternoon after she rejected his proposal and refused to convert to Islam.
He was caught on camera shooting Nikita after a failed abduction bid.
It is worth noting that Tauseef and other accused Rehan were arrested from Nuh.
He has reportedly confessed to murdering Nikita because she was about to marry someone else.
Police investigation revealed Tauseef and Nikita had a phone conversation on the intervening night of October 24-25, a day before she was murdered in broad daylight.
Nikita’s father Mool Chand Tomar alleged Tauseef had been harassing her for several months now and that she had filed a molestation complaint against him in September.
Tomar added: “He had been persistently calling her up for the past few weeks and pressuring her to convert to Islam and marry him but she had refused.”
Other family members alleged Tauseef’s mother had called Nikita several times asking her to convert.
The deceased’s brother in an interview revealed a lot of political pressure was being exerted to save Tauseef. He also named Congress MLA Ahmed in the statement.
The top Congress leadership is silent on the issue raising questions over their selective brand of politics for vote bank.
