In the video, the woman can be been heard urging political leaders to not politicise the sacrifice of soldiers.
The video starts with the woman saying, “Hello everyone, I am the wife of an army officer…”. She never claimed that she is the wife of IAF Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman who is a pilot in Indian Air Force and not in Indian Army.
After some research, we found that the woman in the video is Sirisha Rao, a political activist of the Aam Aadmi Party.
The name of Abhinandan's wife is Tanvi Marwaha who is a former Squadron Leader and retired as a helicopter pilot in 2018.
