According to a report in NDTV, Faridabad Police Officer OP Singh revealed Touseef (one of the two accused), and Nikita knew each other and the former had kidnapped her in 2018 as well. The name of the associate was Rehan. Both accused have been arrested.
According to a report by The Times of India, one of the two accused has been arrested by the police. The incident took place around 3.45 PM, when the final year B.Com student, Nikita Tomar, came out of the Aggarwal College after giving her an exam. As she stepped out of the premises, with a friend, an i20 car with two occupants stopped beside her and one of them tried pulling her in. He opened fire when she started resisting and raising an alarm. The girl was shot in her chest, while the shooter and the driver absconded in the car.
Meanwhile, the family of the woman has linked the killing of the 21-year-old to the so-called ‘love jihad’. The family claimed that the woman was attacked outside her college by a man who was infatuated with her while the other accused is his associate, according to several media reports.
Followed by the incident, netizens on the microblogging site, Twitter is demanding justice for Nikita and lashed out at the law and order. #JusticeForNikita is trending on Twitter.
