  • Share

Summary

An image of Bhim Army chief Chandrashekhar Azad with a woman is being shared with a false claim that the woman in the video is 'fake bhabhi' who was living Hathras case victim. The woman in the video is a social activist.

Many controversies have erupted since it came out that a woman was found to be living at the Hathras victim’s home and reportedly passing herself off as a family member. The woman has been identified as 41-years-old Dr. Rajkumari Bansal, who lives in Jabalpur and is a lecturer at the Netaji  Subhash Chandra Bose Medical College’s pharmacology department. Some news reports have also claimed Rajkumari's involvement with the Bhima Army.

Amid this, an image of Bhim Army chief Chandrashekhar Azad and a woman is being widely shared on social media platforms claiming that the woman in the image is the 'fake bhabhi' who was living with Hathras victim's family.

A Facebook user shared the image with the hashtag 'Hathras bhabhi with Ravan.'

At the time of writing this article, this image has been reshared over 140 times. 

A Twitter user named Vishal Chaturvedi also shared the same image with a caption, "Hathras' Ravan Bhaiya with Naxal bhabhi from Jabalpur. This picture seems old."

The image is being widely shared on Facebook as well as on Twitter with the same claim.

The truth behind the claim 

In our investigation, we found this claim to be false. The woman in the viral image is not Dr. Bansal but a social activist Kiran Yadav. 

After analyzing the comments under the posts, we found that many users have claimed that the woman in the image is not Dr. Rajkumari Bansal but a woman named Kiran Yadav. 

After searching, we found a Facebook profile of a woman with the same name. We found that the Kiran Yadav, whose pictures are uploaded in the profile resembles the woman seen in the viral picture.

As per her bio, Kiran Yadav is a social activist and has over a million followers on Facebook. In 2017, many media organisation published articles about her. 

Yadav is also quite active on Twitter and when we performed an advance search, we found that she has made several tweets mentioning and supporting Bhim army chief and calling him her brother. 

Aaj Tak reached out to the spokesman of the Bhima Army,  who confirmed that the woman in the viral image is Kiran Yadav only. 

Moreover, a comparison between the picture of the woman in the viral image and the picture of Dr. Rajkumari Bansal makes it clear that both the women are different. 

In conclusion, an image of Bhim Army chief Chandrashekhar Azad with a woman is being shared with a false claim that the woman in the video is 'fake bhabhi' who was living Hathras case victim. The woman in the video is a social activist.
