He has been following her for the last several years and studies in same college.
Tauseef and Rehan khan were arrested from Mewat by the SIT team and investigators told that he killed her as she was planning to get married with other person. Since she refused to convert into Islam and rejected his friendship. Tauseef was became madden and wanted to teach a lesson to Nikita.

First, they tried to kidnap her in the car when do not succeed, then they shot her. The Incident took place during a failed abduction attempt that was recorded on camera.
