Rumour

Youth Congress’ magazine Yuva Desh tweeted a video with a caption claiming IAF wing commander Abhinandan's wife has asked BJP to top doing politics on army's sacrifice.

This is is being widely circulated on social media with a similar claim. You can watch the video here:

In the video, the woman can be been heard urging political leaders to not politicise the sacrifice of soldiers.

Our Investigation

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.

Fact

The woman in the viral video is not the wife of IAF Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman. She is the wife of an army officer and a political activist of 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.
