Delhi University protests: Gurmehar Kaur withdraws from campaign

February 28, 2017 10:47 am | Updated 10:57 am IST

Gurmehar Kaur, the 20-year-old student from Delhi University who started an online campaign ‘I am not afraid of ABVP’, tweeted on Monday that she was withdrawing from the campaign.

In a series of tweets, Ms. Kaur said, “I have been through a lot and this is all my 20 year self could take.”

She said the campaign was about “students and not about me.”

The daughter of a Kargil martyr, Ms. Kaur, had on Monday filed a complaint with the Delhi Commission for Women (DCW) after she received rape and death threats on social media.

Ms. Kaur said she received the threats after she took a stand against the Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) over the Ramjas college violence.

The university student posted a picture of herself holding a placard that read: “I am a student from Delhi University. I am not afraid of ABVP. I am not alone. Every student of India is with me. #StudentAgainstABVP”.
