New Delhi, Feb 27: Delhi Commission for Women (DCW) chief Swati Maliwal on Monday while taking cognizance on the serious matter written to Delhi Police Commissioner Amulya Patnaik, seeking registration of a case against those threatening Kargil war martyr’s daughter Gurmehar Kaur and their arrest.
As Kaur met Maliwal earlier in the day and informed her about the online threats she was getting after raising voice to RSS student wing Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP).
“It is a matter of shame that a martyr’s daughter is being attacked like this and is threatened with rape and death. If no action is taken against the culprits right now, people will lose faith in the system,” she said.
Lady Shri Ram College student Kaur shared a picture of her’s holding a poster on Facebook that said: “I am a student from Delhi University. I am not afraid of ABVP. I am not alone. Every student of India is with me.”

Kaur started the online campaign against the ABVP after the February 22 violence outside Delhi University’s Ramjas College.
She then received rape and death threats on social media by some who called her “anti-national”.
Along with threats, Kaur has also received the support of innumerable people — young and old — for her stand against the ABVP and violence on the campus.
