She was rushed to nearby hospital where she was declared dead.

Nikita’s family had alleged that the accused Tauseef and well his mother forced her to convert to Islam. In 2018, Tauseef had reportedly abducted Nikita after which an FIR was filed. However, the matter was resolved through a panchayat.
