Nikita murder accused wants to be lodged in Bhondsi

Faridabad, October 29

Main accused Tausif belongs to a political family that has been in power in Mewat for years. He has raised the demand to be lodged in a jail of his choice.

Following a court order to send him to the Neemka jail in Faridabad, his lawyer moved an application that he should be sent to Gurugram’s Bhondsi jail instead.

Nikita’s maternal uncle and her family’s lawyer Aidal Singh Rawat said they had received information that Tausif had moved an application to be moved to the Bhondsi jail. Rawat said Tausif’s maternal uncle Islamuddin, a notorious criminal, was lodged in Bhondsi jail. “They will run their nexus there. We will protest against this and appeal to court not to accept this demand,” he said.

Tausif had reportedly changed his name to Ankit to get in touch with Nikita during their school days, fearing that his religion might become a hindrance.
