Radhika was happy when she left home on Tuesday. She went up to her father and coaxed him to give her Rs200 as she was planning to eat out with her friends. Her father Rajender Singh Tanwar wanted her to do MBA from one of the better-known B-Schools and then work in a multinational company.
But all his dreams came crashing down when a phone call informed him that Radhika was shot and later died at Safdarjung Hospital. Now 24 hours after his daughter’s cremation, all he wants is revenge from the person who shot her.
The family is still confused about why she was targeted as they claim that she had no enemies or stalkers prying on her.
“The police are not telling us anything. And the reports they are floating in the media that a stalker was harassing her are false. If anything of that sort was happening, my daughter would have told me in the first instance,” he said.
The family has also rubbished the allegations that two years back they had allegedly thrashed a youth who was stalking Radhika.
“The police are cooking up stories as they do not have any leads. We never thrashed anyone. Radhika never even told us anything about any boy bothering her,” he added.
On Wednesday, chief minister Sheila Dikshit visited the family.
“I have said very clearly that it is a matter of great concern. The attacks are taking place on women. We hardly hear about any such attacks on men. The police must be more sensitive to ensure safety and security to women,” Dikshit said at Naraina village.
