On Monday, DCW forwarded a complaint of the Lady Shri Ram College student regarding the online abuse. The Deputy Commissioner of Police of the area then spoke to her and provided the necessary security, the police said.

Kaur posted on her Facebook: "I am a student of Delhi University. I am not afraid of ABVP. I am not alone. Every student of India is with me."
