Ludhiana teen Jhanvi Behal who challenged JNU’s Kanhaiya Kumar files police complaint for cyberstalking

16-year-old Ludhiana teen who challenged controversial JNU student leader Kanhaiya Kumar has filed a police complaint alleging threats and cyberstalking.

She says she has been receiving threats from across the world and for the first time a cyberstalking complaint by a victim as young as she is has been accepted. She said after two years, a complaint has been registered in her case.

In March 2016, Jhanvi had challenged JNU’s Kanhaiya Kumar to an open debate over his allegations on Prime Minister Modi. Following that, she was mercilessly trolled on Twitter for questioning the new ‘hero’ who had just ‘challenged Modi’. Then Twitter India employee who headed news, politics and government, also indulged in mocking her. Many journalists, too, trolled her only for having an opinion.

At that time, Jhanvi, who was about 14 years old had conducted a sting operation against liquor selling mafia in school and got them nabbed, made a documentary on female foeticide and had her efforts acknowledged by the Prime Minister on Republic Day. But because she had ‘dared’ to challenge the posterboy of so-called liberals, she was trolled.

Eventually the trolling escalated to veiled threats. The so-called liberal journalists and others had turned into cyberbullies just to discredit her.
