Nikita Tomar’s family says Tauseef was harassing her for long, they lodged complaint in 2018

New Delhi: The family of Nikita Tomar, a 21-year-old student who was shot dead outside her college in Haryana’s Ballabhgarh, has alleged that she was killed because she refused to convert to Islam.

Speaking to ThePrint, Nikita’s mother Vijayawati Tomar said, “Our daughter was very bright. He killed her because he knew he couldn’t force her to convert to Islam… She wanted to become a government officer, had plans to appear for the civil services.”

Vijayawati was referring to the main accused Tauseef Ahmed, who was arrested Monday within five hours of the crime. The other accused, Rehan, was arrested Tuesday. While Tauseef is a resident of Kabir Nagar in Sohna, Rehan is from Mewat’s Rivasan village.

On Monday, the two accused were waiting for her in a car outside Aggarwal College in Faridabad, where she had gone to write B.Com exams. A viral CCTV video shows the two first attempting to abduct her, but shooting her dead when she resisted.

The two accused fled the spot after the incident and were on their way to Mewat before being arrested, according to the police. Haryana Home Minister Anil Vij Tuesday set up special investigation team (SIT), led by Anil Kumar, Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP), Crime, Faridabad, to probe the case.

Nikita was cremated late Tuesday. She is survived by her parents and an elder brother.

‘Forced her to convert’

According to the police, Tauseef Ahmed was known to Nikita and her family, and that he had tried to abduct her two years ago as well. “In 2018, Tauseef had kidnapped the girl. However, the complaint was later withdrawn by the girl’s family,” ACP Anil Kumar told ThePrint.

Vijayawati Tomar said the complaint was withdrawn after Tauseef’s family “pleaded and begged” them.

“We had complained about the boy in 2018 for harassing our daughter. He had been after her life since then, but withdrew the complaint after Ahmed’s family begged us and told us that it won’t happen again,” said Nikita’s father, Moolchand Tomar, who works with a private company.

Tauseef and Nikita had studied together at Rawal International School in Faridabad. Currently, Tauseef was enrolled in a physiotherapy course in Gurugram while Nikita was in her final year of BCom.

Nikita’s brother alleged a “love jihad” attempt by Tauseef.

“Tauseef wanted to marry her, kept forcing her from time to time but Nikita was never interested in him. He wanted to perform love jihad, convert her to Islam,” said 25-year-old Naveen Tomar, who is preparing for his SSC exams in Delhi after completing his engineering.

“We want both of them to be hanged. Only then justice will be delivered. Nothing less than phaansi (death penalty),” he said.

On Tuesday, members of the extended family and friends staged a protest on the Faridabad flyway demanding strict and urgent action against the accused.

“This will keep happening here if the culprits aren’t treated like the way Yogi (Adityanath) sarkar treated Vikas Dubey,” said Gangashyam, a relative of the girl.

A senior police officer, who did not wish to be named, said Tauseef has confessed to the crime, saying he killed her as she was planning to marry someone else. According to sources, it was found during the course of the police probe that Nikita and Tauseef spoke over the phone the night before she was murdered.

Political links and accused’s family

Tauseef Ahmed’s relatives, however, deny the charge of “love jihad”.

“He is a very nice boy and has no anger issue. We know the girl but can’t say why he did that. These people want to make it political so they have started the ‘love jihad’ narrative,” said a relative of Tauseef, who didn’t wish to be named.

Tauseef comes from a family of zamindars and politicians, which has a long history of ties with the Congress party.

His grandfather Chaudhary Kabir Ahmed, after whom the locality Kabir Nagar is named according to family members, was an MLA from Mewat. Kabir Ahmed’s brother Khurshid Ahmed had been elected to the Haryana Vidhan Sabha on five occasions and also served as a minister in the state cabinet. Aftab Ahmed, the sitting Congress MLA from Nuh constituency, is Khurshid Ahmed’s son.

“Tauseef had cleared the medical entrance — NEET — in 2018. He was a good student. I don’t know what got into him,” said a friend of the accused, who didn’t wish to be identified.

Why news media is in crisis & How you can fix it

India needs free, fair, non-hyphenated and questioning journalism even more as it faces multiple crises.

ThePrint has the finest young reporters, columnists and editors working for it. Sustaining journalism of this quality needs smart and thinking people like you to pay for it. Whether you live in India or overseas, you can do it here.

  1. Stop this ball shit talk about religion and get these 2 Devils hanged for the horrible crime they have committed as fast as possible. The men in india need to control their sexual urges and put a stop to all the rape that’s going on . The men who commit crimes of rape should simply have their dicks cut of and watch how fast the rape crimes come down and have more strict laws on men who believe in one sided love .

  2. Their should be narco test of boys and girls family who is lying ad who is telling the truth as Yogi adityanath did the same for Hathras

  3. Their should be narco test of boys and girls family who is lying ad who is telling the truth as Yogi adityanath did the same for Hathras

  4. Mainstream media blanked this news. Like the recent beheadings by followers of peaceful religion in France.

    Tanishq please come with an ad sequel. EKVATAM deserves a part 2. Love Jihad the gory-end! End of story.

  5. Please don’t try to give religion to this crime, when she was not interested,then how he will force to convert into Islam,also naming congress and connection it proves girl family is guided by BJP workers to provoke people for riots…..Keep religion and politics aside

    He did which is totally wrong and he too deserves to be hanged

  6. I believe Nikita’s mother’s version in this regard completely. Tauseef and his accomplice should be hanged carrying out a swift trial. Such coercion is simply unacceptable and these incidents should be nipped in the bud without delay. Everyone should be allowed to live in the society fearlessly and as per his/her will. Taking other’s life for selfish ends is a work of satan, and satan should be demolished at once- whomsoever it may be residing in.

  7. Anyone can qualify NEET, important thing is to get good enough percentile to get a half decent college. Qualifying NEET is like attending exam and putting in roll number without any errors.
    As for love-jihad, his mother said to the girl and girl’s family to convert and marry his son.

    • You identify yourself as rationalist? To me, you are being most irrational. It was the boy who was insistent and not the other way round. The boy’s family had no locus standi to tell the girl’s family the thing it told. My heart goes out to the departed innocent soul, Nikita, and her bereaved family. What Tauseef and his accomplice did was extremely heinous. Does he have a sister? Will he allow such a thing to happen with her?

  8. This kind of story is a fabrication, that Hindus float from time to time, to deflect attention from their violence against minorities.

    Such a story will stay a few days in one or two papers, and disappear. Then after sometime, the Hindus will create another fabrication.

    In the current climate of roaming Hindu lynch mobs with political support, no Muslim will do such a thing.

    A few years ago, Zee TV put out a story that a Muslim school teacher in N. India was asking Hindu children to convert. The anchors were outraged. The news was not seen on other channels and disappeared from Zee after one day. It was a fabrication. The Hindus are repeatedly using this technique to stoke hatred.

    • You are such an abhorrent creature, rasgolla; I detest you to the hilt. You are blind by both- intellect as well as eyes. The print’s comments forum will be better off without the nasty dung of your filthy mind spread on it.


      Are you in bed with this Nazi devil Rasgolla that you let him spew his venom towards Hindus without any restrictions ?


    • Pehli baar suna hai ki koi NEET clear karke mbbs chod physiotherapy padh raha hai. News wale sare dunia ko unhi ki tarah bewakoof samajhte hain.

  9. This kind of things are bound to happen, when there is uneven freedom given to women. Unless Hindus force government to ban hijab, Niqab and insist on ensuring same freedom to Muslim women as enjoyed by Hindu women to preserve communal harmony & secularism.

    • Gaurakshak Harry : You bray:

      ” .. ensuring same freedom to Muslim women as enjoyed by Hindu women ..”

      Do you know how much freedom khap panchayats in Haryana, MP etc. give women ? They are not even allowed to have cell phones !

      Yes, Muslim women are denied many freedoms. But Hindu women do not necessarily get better treatment either.

      • First of all Hindu women are not denied any freedom. You are just taking some isolated incidents it’s not true for the entire country.
        Women in India particularly from Hindu community are more successful compared to women from other communities and have more say in their day to day life compared to women in other communities. Yes there are oppressions faced by women in India but to say Hindu women do not necessarily enjoy freedom is far from the truth

      • Kili Jolsiyar , your comment is akin to saying that because of there may be a few cases rapists in Kerala, all Keralites women are rape victims.

        So if you are intelligent enough, you would realize that you are propagating nonsense and if courageous enough you will admit that. in any other case either you are stup*d or scoundrel, like nearly all secularist Hindus are.

      • Kili Jolsiyar, Do you want Hindus, instead of insisting government to give more freedom to Muslim women, should insist government to support attempts by Mullah & other Jihadi elements to reduce Indian Muslim women to the level of Afghanistan women wearing full Niqab & not much venture outside?

    • The Hindus should learn how to administer the country. So far, they have not shown the capability. The economy is sunk, Covid is out of control, and the Hindus showed the utmost cowardice in defending Indian land being seized by China.

      CAA-NRC led to an impasse, do you think the Hindu govt. will be able to ban hijab ?

      ‘ensuring same freedom to Muslim women as enjoyed by Hindu women to preserve communal harmony & secularism.’

      Hindu women enjoy freedoms like being raped by BJP Hindus. The other communities are not seeking your freedom.

      • The Hindus know how to run this country that’s why it’s the 5th largest economy in the world.
        Please go and pray to your master you slave because that is what you are and what you will ever be.
        Get a life you slave.

      • Yes rasgolla , Hindus did showed the utmost cowardice but only during Mopla uprising in Kerala , in Noakhali and in Kashmir by Hindu Keralites, Hindu Bengalis and Kashmiri Pandits. They were not Gujaratis to pay back Muslims in their own coin.

        That argumentative Bengali Amaritya Sen’s family also stopped arguing with Muslims and ran away with tail between their hind legs to Hindu area of India. They started barking only after that.

      • Govern like Syria, iraq , Yemen, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Lebanon, sudan , Somalia all islamic shit HOLES. You inbred piece of halala cra.

  10. Wahh, a narative you pleople trying to set. If a person tops civil services and becomes terrorist after that and start killing its own people.. then in THE PRINT’s point of view the boy should not be condemned provided he belongs to muslim community. Why so much revulsion for Hindu religion.

    • Because at the end of the day it is Hindus who are the majority, and they are taking the country down with fake news.

      • Just because hindus are in majority doesn’t mean crimes committed are all Hindu’s fault.
        Muslim are particularly very religious and commit crimes against hindus because of their hatred towards hindus and your religion allows it.

  11. Wahh, a narative you pleople trying to set. If a person tops civil services and becomes terrorist after that and start killing its own people.. then in THE PRINT’s point of view the boy should not be condemned provided he belongs to muslim community. Why so much revulsion for Hindu religion.

  12. Clearing neet is no big achievement or a justification of his crime. Why would you lower your credibility by mentioning that?

  13. He cleared neet? Is this even relevant to the case?out of 16 lac students who appeared, 7.7 lac students cleared neet this is no big feat. Moreover,Education doesn’t absolve a killer of his crime. I’m sure the journalist has a word limit for every article. I’m baffled by the fact that the journalist believes this information holds any significance to a cold blooded murderer.

    • Well said, Ayushi. Only his devilish act, that of murdering the innocent girl, which matters now. And that act needs to be compensated by an equally punishing act of hanging him at the earliest. If education did not make him civil, then it was simply worthless.

  14. Some time I feel media spread fake news…
    It’s possible only in india because people believe on andhvishwas….
    If he doing non sense behave take a strict action…and remember all muslim not same thinking….ek ke liye sab ko target nahi karna chaiye…

    • Even this story is fake. When minorities are lynched based on a Whats App video, no minority will go and target the majority. It is fake news that Hindus spread to try and counter their own bad image of rape.

      • “no minority will go and target the majority.”


        Then what happened in Godhra train station? Many Minority members behaving like a pack of wolves. This was clear example, two guys attacking lonely woman, like pack of wolves. Only harsh reaction of majority will keep these wolves in check and ultimately Muslims themselves will get rid of these thugs & gangsters from their community to keep peace and harmony . Rasgolla, These thugs & gangsters include Jihadis like you too.

        Ultimately Muslims will become Dine-elahi and bring peace and communal harmony.

        • The Ahmedabad Forensic Laboratory’s report said, from the burn marks, the fire in the train occurred due to a fuel spillage inside and NOT due to a mob throwing petrol from outside as claimed by the Gujarat government. Some of the details were published in the Indian media and I read it. HM Advani barred the report from being published. Why ? There was something to hide.

          The fire was caused by Sanghis themselves. They work by the formula : the Brahmin plots, the bania finances, and the sudra is the street fighter, who is hired and sent as kar sevaks with a few Rs. and a bottle of liquor, and then burnt.

          The Hindu media claimed Covid was caused by Markaz. The namaste Trump show was a bigger hot spot.

          The Hindu media said Hindu holymen were killed in Palghar by Sonia and Vatican.

          Lying is part of your innate character. You gave the word thug to the English language.

          • First of all I just have to say from reading your above comments you clearly hate hindus and nobody ever has to show you any sort of aadhar card to prove they are not fake. From what you said about Allahabad high court it does not say that fire was not caused by the mob it just says there was leak inside the train, but still it is a known fact that Muslim mob did attack the train and try to set it on fire it doesn’t have to be the mob who had to throw any sort of inflamable substance to incite flame from what you said
            Second of all I didn’t read any of that report anywhere which proves you are wrong and fake and a hate monger who hates hindus.
            This is the report from Gujarat forensic labs read for yourself
            A study conducted by the Gujarat Forensic Science Laboratory report states that the fire was due to the inflammable liquid emptied by the attackers into the coach. Furthermore, the fire got initiated from inside as a result there were very less burn marks on the outside of the coach below the windows.
            I can give you a lot more evidence regarding this incident which are facts not fake news generated by people like you.

          • @ Unknown: There is absolutely no need of arguing with rasgolla or discipling him, as he is not a reasonable person. He belongs to the “hum nahi sudhrengey” category of people.

  15. Abhi kiya murdered case mya main culprit konsa exam pass dekhke justice hona chahiya kiya?????..kau Nikita kinta exam kinta no mila a to likho ….kuj din pahale kiya koi rule huya hay kiya open goli marke murdered korne ka bad bhi neet or koi exam pass korne kiya relive milta hya…. ae bolke toda relive dena chahate ho kiya….

  16. His relative says: “Tauseef had cleared the medical entrance — NEET — in 2018. He was a good student. I don’t know what got into him,” said a friend of the accused, who didn’t wish to be identified.

    I will tell U what got into him… RADICAL ISLAM

  17. What type of people are you ?? Such shameless behaviour of being biased for a criminal that’s not reporting and you guys are no better than others, such a shame I usedto like you guys but your are the worst .

    • Absolutely. Also, education is not a solution to any of the problems asociated with these people. The Print is fourth (class) pillar of hypocracy.

  18. He was a nice guy, cleared NET exam – Bullshit, so why did he kill her. Their calling of religion, 72 hurs is much more compelling. I don’t know when will we realise this. Keep offering them jobs, employment . they are nor interested. Please wake up , pls.
