A Muslim man fired six bullets at a Hindu girl on the day of her wedding, 2 December, in District Rohtak, Haryana. Identified as Mohammed Sahil, he nearly killed Tanishka Sharma in Haryana’s Sampla on her wedding day. Tanishka is battling for her life in PGI Rohtak according to a report in Organiser.
Haryana Police has formed six teams to track the Muslim man who is on the run. The police have rounded up two minors who were allegedly passing information about Tanishka’s wedding to Sahil.
“When we reached near the Shiv temple around 11:30 PM, an Innova (car) that was chasing us for quite some time overtook our vehicle and blocked our way. Three people were seated in the car. Two of them came out, carrying revolvers, and asked Sunil to open our car door.
“They snatched the car keys, fired multiple gunshots at Tanishka. When Sunil tried to intervene, they assaulted him and snatched his gold chain. They fled after firing gunshots in the air. Tanishka was admitted to Rohtak’s PGIMS where her condition is stated to be critical”, bridegroom Mohan said.
Mohan, a resident of Bhali-Anandpur village, got married to Tanishka Sharma, a resident of Sampla village, on 1 December. The Muslim man attacked the couple in Village Bhali-Anandpur when the couple was going home. Mohan’s brother Sunil was driving the car.
In a similar incident in Haryana’s Faridabad, Nikita Tomar, 21, was murdered in broad daylight on 26 October last year by Tausif and Rehan. A BCom final year student, she had just stepped out of her college after writing her exams when the duo intercepted her.
Tausif and Rehan initially tried to abduct her in a car, but Tausif fired at her when she resisted. He had been harassing her for some time. Tausif is from an influential political family.
The incident was captured on a camera. The Haryana government had formed an SIT to investigate the murder.
The prosecution demanded the death penalty, but the trial court, concluding the trial that had begun in December 2020, sentenced them for life in March this year. Nikita’s mother wanted the death penalty for her daughter’s killers.
