Faridabad girl’s killers held, key accused related to ex-MLA

Tribune News Service

Faridabad, October 27

The police have arrested two youths allegedly involved in the killing of a 21-year-old woman outside a college in Ballabgarh on Monday. The victim, Nikita, was shot point blank range. The accused —Tausif (22) and Rehan (21) —have been remanded in police custody for two days.

Hundreds of local residents blocked the Ballabgarh-Sohna road for over four hours this afternoon.

Victim’s father Mool Chand Tomar alleged Tausif was booked in a case of kidnapping in 2018 on their complaint, which they later withdrew “under pressure”. He said despite the threat, no security was provided to Nikita. ACP Anil Kumar, however, said the family had withdrawn the complaint after a compromise.

Tausif is the grandson of a former MLA and nephew of a former MP. — TNS
