An FIR was registered on Tuesday against unknown persons in connection with Gurmehar Kaur, the Kargil martyr's daughter, who complained of receiving "rape threats", allegedly from Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) members. On Monday, police had received a letter from Delhi Commission for Women demanding immediate registration of an FIR against those who had threatened 20-year-old Kaur. The FIR was registered under relevant sections of the IT Act and IPC, said a senior police officer. "Yesterday,DCW forwarded a complaint of a DU student reg. online abuse.

Kaur had last week changed her Facebook profile picture to one in which she was holding a placard reading, "I am a student from Delhi University. I am not afraid of ABVP. I am not alone. Every student of India is with me. #StudentsAgainstABVP." Ramjas college had last week witnessed large-scale violence between members of the All India Students Association and the ABVP. The genesis of the clash was an invite to Jawaharlal Nehru University students Umar Khalid and Shehla Rashid to address a seminar on 'Culture of Protests' which was withdrawn by the college authorities following opposition by the ABVP.
