During attending a marriage ceremony Nitish Katara was abducted on February 16th, 2002 from Ghaziabad adjoining area of Delhi and was murdered.
 Nitish Katara was a 25-year-old Indian business executive in Delhi who was murdered in the early hours of 17 February 2002, by VikasYadav the son of influential criminal-politician D. P. Yadav. Nitish had graduated from the Institute of Management Technology, Ghaziabad where, he had fallen in love with his classmate, Bharti Yadav, sister of Vikas.

On the night of February, Nitish and Bharti were attending a common friend’s wedding, where Bharti’s brother, Vikas and a cousin were present as well. From there, Nitish was taken for a drive by Bharti’s brother Vikas and Vishal Yadav, and never returned.
 Nitish’s only mistake that took his life was that he agreed to go with them thinking that Vikas really wanted to talk and sort out the differences between them, and failed to sense that the hidden motive behind the drive was solely to end Bharti’s love tangles with him.
 The following morning, his body was found by the highway; he had been battered to death with a hammer, diesel poured on him, and set aflame.
