Delhi University's Lady Shri Ram College student Gurmehar Kaur, daughter of Kargil martyr Captain Mandeep Singh, said she has received hate messages including "rape threats" from ABVP, the youth wing of the BJP.

Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) and All India Students Association(AISA) students have been clashing for over a week in the University campus over the invitation extended to Umar Khalid and Shehla Rashid to address a seminar on 'Culture of Protests' at Ramjas College. The controversial JNU student Umar Khalid had faced sedition charges last year.

The incident quickly took a 'political' turn with Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal hitting out at the BJP in a series of tweets.



Lady Shri Ram College student Gurmehar Kaur had attacked the ABVP in her facebook page during clashes last week, the message went viral leading to her being targeted by people on social media.
