Fridabad, October 28
A three-member SIT, headed by ACP (Crime) Anil Kumar, has been set up to probe the murder of the 21-year-old woman who was shot by two youths outside a college in Ballabgarh on Monday.
The SIT members visited the aggrieved family this morning. The victim’s mother alleged the key accused, Tausif, had been pressuring Nikita to marry him. Booked in 2018 on the family’s complaint, Tausif was later let off. He did not contact any member of the family thereafter.
Haryana Home Minister Anil Vij said the SIT would look into the 2018 complaint and inquire if any Congress leader was involved in hushing up the matter. Yashpal Yadav, DC, said security had been provided to the family. Union Minister of State for Social Justice KP Gurjar visited the family. Former Congress MLA Karan Dalal demanded an FIR against cops for “laxity in handling the case.” — TNS
