“Always seek police help, even for something as small as lewd comments. Once you do so, never settle for a compromise. In 2018, he was all tears as he swore never to trouble Nikita again. The panchayat assured us that he would never do it again. He came back and killed her because that apology hit his inflated ego. Had we not agreed to the compromise, she would still have been here,” said Vijaywati, Nikita’s wailing mother.

The family, though in utter shock, were busy attending to police investigation and meeting mediapersons and members of social and religious organisations visiting their house.

“The loss is yet to be registered as we have not got time to mourn properly. We wake up to a crowd that sits with us and makes us repeat the horror over and over again. I sometimes find myself calling out to her to serve water and tea and suddenly realise that she is not there anymore. I know everybody will leave one day and we will be alone, crying our hearts out,” said Vijaywati.

According to the family, Tausif had abducted Nikita in 2018. Following an FIR, the family had struck a compromise and moved on as he apologised. The incident emerged as the most important part of investigation, with the police believing that it was a well-planned, cold-blooded murder. There were many eyewitnesses, including Nikita’s brother and three friends, who had been confined to their homes now.
