With the four-member SIT led by the ACP (Crime) expected to file the charge sheet against the accused in Nikita Tomar murder case within two weeks, family members of the victim are insisting on the demand of death penalty for the accused within a minimum period of time.

3 in judicial custody

Rehan, the second accused in the case, was sent to judicial custody after completion of police remand. Tausif, the main accused, and Ajru, who had reportedly supplied the weapon, had already been sent to judicial custody.

The family members are sceptical about the fulfilment of other demands like government job to a member and compensation raised by their sympathisers.

Claiming that the case has almost been solved as the SIT has collected all evidence and facts connected with the case, a senior police officer said the SIT was not expected to take more than 12 days to file the charge sheet.

He said the main accused, including those who had conspired and murdered the girl, had been arrested. He said the team had recovered the car and weapon used in the crime and the supplier of the illicit gun had also been nabbed.

According to sources, the probe had been going on at the required pace and more arrests could not be ruled out though active involvement of any other person in this case seemed remote.

Adal Singh Rawat, maternal uncle of the victim, said the family members were hopeful of a positive response to the demands of government job to a kin and financial help raised by sympathisers. He said Rs 1 crore had been given earlier in similar cases elsewhere in the country.

Nikita's brother Navin Kumar, who had completed a B.Tech (mechanical) course in 2017, did not see much hope for a government job and financial help.

"I am preparing for the civil services examination and do not expect any such empathy from the authorities concerned," he said. He added that the only demand was death or encounter of the accused within a minimum period of time.

Nikita's father Mool Chand Tomar said he was hopeful of justice in a short span of time. He added that the demands of a government job and financial help had not been raised by the family.

Local MP Krishan Pal Gurjar said he stood by the family and would take up the issues of a government job and compensation with the Chief Minister soon.
