Key accused’s kin fail to join probe

Tribune News Service

Faridabad, December 1

The parents and uncle of Tausif, the key accused in the murder of 21-year-old Nikita Tomar who was shot outside her college in Ballabgarh on October 26, have failed to join the investigation in connection with the 2018 kidnapping case.

Tausif had allegedly kidnapped Nikita two years. A case was registered, but the matter was settled following a compromise between the families of the boy and the girl.

The SIT reopened the kidnapping case after Tausif allegedly murdered Nikita.

It had, last week, issued a notice to Tausif's father Zakir, uncle Javed and mother to join the investigation, but they had failed to respond, police officials said. When a police team went to their house in Gurugram, no one was found there. They were absconding, the police have said.

"The SIT has already issued two notices to Tausif's family on the basis of the statement given by Nikita under Section 164 of the CrPC in 2018. She had said Tausif's parents and uncle had been mounting pressure on her to marry him in spite of her opposition. Members of Tausif's family have not responded to the notices. Besides, they are on the run. Their arrest cannot be ruled out," said ACP Anil Kumar, who is heading the SIT.
