On the news piece that the murder accused Tausif had been harassing Nikita for months, Sona tweeted from her verified account: “To everyone who keeps asking women to ‘follow due process’, ‘lodge a police complaint’, shames them, please note #NikitaTomar did all that, did it help? Harassment of all kind is something we are supposed to somehow ‘navigate’ in the society we live in? Till we are raped/killed.”

A while ago, Sona expressed his views on the Hathras rape case and tweeted, “Hoping all of India is listening, watching and noting. @Uppolice #HathrasCase . #JusticeForHathrasVictim. I was not there, don’t know all the details, don’t care to make this a political hulaboo, my heart & soul hears & cries for #ManishaValmiki & her family. Police reforms from the ground up please dear #India. We’ve been carrying forward the British legacy for too long. #Hathras.”
