The Faridabad police have decided to reopen the 2018 kidnapping case against Tausif, who allegedly shot 21-year-old Nikita outside her college in Ballabgarh on Monday. Nikita’s family claims to have been forced to withdraw the case then owing to “political and social pressure”.

On the complaint of Mool Chand Tomar, Nikita’s father, Tausif was booked under Section 365 (kidnapping) on August 3, 2018. Nikita was traced the following day. Subsequently, the family withdrew the complaint, submitting an affidavit to the police mentioning it did not want to pursue the case any further.
Nikita’s maternal uncle, advocate Adal Singh Rawat, said the family was under immense pressure as Tausif’s family wielded much influence in the area. His cousin was a Congress MLA and an uncle a BSP leader.
