As per reports, Nikita and Touseef studied in same school in Faridabad, Haryana and were batchmates. Nikita was a topper in class 12 and was preparing for UPSC. After graduating from school in 2018, Nikita took up commerce while Touseef took up a course in physiotherapy.
In 2018, Touseef reportedly abducted Nikita. A case was filed back then but after a Panchayat was held, it was withdrawn. Nikita’s family alleges that Touseef’s family pressurised them into withdrawing the case as they are politically influential.
