Jalandhar: A day after the video of a girl in ‘inebriated condition’ dancing in a car went viral on the social media, claiming it to be that of Delhi University (DU) student Gurmehar Kaur, her mother on Saturday and termed the video to be ‘fake’.
The video featuring a girl ‘similar’ to Gurmehar was shown in poor light with comments from the social media users. Trollers, social media users on Facebook and Whatsapp shared the video terming it as the ‘true picture of Gurmehar Kaur’.
Incidentally, the social media users mentioned Gurmehar’s name as ‘Gulmehar’ and mentioned her as a student of Jawahar Lal Nehru (JNU) Delhi. However, Gurmehar was a student of Lady Shri Ram College, Delhi under DU.
Rajwinder Kaur, the mother of Gurmehar Kaur said that the girl shown in the video was not her daughter. “Though the girl shown in the video somewhat looked like my daughter but she was not Gurmehar. The girl in the video has a clear complexion as compared to my daughter. Moreover, the girl in the video was looking mature than Gurmehar”, she said.
Gurmehar’s mother also stated that she and her daughter were flooded with calls from relatives and friends, who too inquired if the video was true. “I respect the personal life of the girl, who has been shown dancing in the video, but she is not Gurmehar”, she added.
Notably, the DU student came under sharp attack from social media users, after she used a profile picture on Facebook mentioning that she was not afraid of Akhil Bhartiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP). Following this, she was not only trolled but targeted with alleged rape and death threats on her personal account.
Her status on Facebook was an apparent mention to the recent student clash that took place in Ramjas College, where JNU student leader Umar Khalid was supposed to deliver a lecture. However, the girl was currently in Jalandhar at her home and on a 15-day leave from her college.
A Punjab Government officer and wife of post Kargil war martyr Capt Mandeep Singh, Rajwinder also maintained that the video of the girl was seemingly shot somewhere in the Arab country. “Gurmehar has never been to any foreign country till date. Even the bottle shown in the video has something written in Arabic”, she clarified.
Meanwhile, Gurmehar recently deactivated her Facebook account while the Delhi Police was already probing the matter.
