Cop harassed us, claims woman's kin

Nikita Chauhan’s sister has told police that Delhi Police sub-inspector Vijender Kumar had been harassing the family.

The woman claimed that Vijender used to threaten them using his service revolver.
Vijender shot Nikita five times following an argument at a park in Dwarka, then pumped three bullets into himself in a fit of violence that left both of them dead on Sunday.


Vijender had got the revolver issued from west Delhi’s Ranhola police station saying he needed it for a raid in a robbery case.

It is alleged that Vijender had gone to Nikita’s house last year on her birthday to give her flowers.

Her husband was at home. She had then filed a complaint against Vijender.
In October 2015, Nikita had met Joint Commissioner of Police (Southwestern Range) Deependra Pathak to complain about Vijender. Nikita had told police that Vijender cheated her on the pretext of marriage.

Pathak said Vijender had not reported to work this month.
He joined duty on Saturday. Vijender had then requested for the revolver and 10 cartridges.

In the last three years, Vijender had faced two departmental inquiries and received six show cause notices for not investigating and completing his case files.
Nikita’s father has also asked police to investigate if her husband Parvesh was involved in the deaths. They have filed a complaint with local police.

On the other hand, Vijender had also left a note in which he has alleged that Nikita had been extorting money from him for three years. The note addressed to Vijender’s mother was recovered from his pocket.

Sources said Vijender had been planning to murder her and then kill himself for the last two weeks.

In the note, Vijender wrote that he borrowed Rs 5 lakh to pay Nikita. He was also not reporting to work to evade creditors.

Vijender claimed that Nikita began blackmailing after finding his marital status. It is alleged that Nikita threatened to file a rape case against Vijender.
