What is Truth (Reality) of Dharmshala Gang Rape?

From the last few days, I was seeing a trend in social media about a Gang Rape in the Dharmshala city of Hiamchal Pradesh. In the last three days, the numbers of such posts increased many times with few pages created on Facebook to support the rape victim.

As per the post and information shared on the social media, "A Dharmsala college girl was gang raped and her condition is very critical. It was further circulated that all culprits of rape are from rich and influential families; and one of them is a relative of a ruling party minister."

Initially, I also thought that this incidence is real and there is a try to stop justice to a poor girl because it is promoted in such a way.

A Few lines from a message circulated on Facebook- 
"News of Brutal rape of a girl in Dharamshala Degree college has shaken the conscience and spirits of the youth of this state.There are protests going on around the campus, There is news coming of witnesses being threatened and sense of fear is looming around the city. Students are accepting privately that incident has occurred but no one dares to come out in public. Their fear indeed is genuine when incident in itself is laced with allegations of an involvement of some high profile people."
One of Circulated Images-

Few more images include a badly injured girl with head injury and a girl wrapped in Indian flag with a hand trying to snatch the flag to rape her. Further, it is circulated that she is Nirvaya of Himachal Pradesh. 

If we go by the messages, then the rape victim girl belongs to Chamba district of Himachal Pradesh. Initially, it was shared that she is admitted to the Tanda Medical College, but the doctors are not treating her due to political pressure. 

Today, HP police told to media after three days of investigation that this is a false case and no such incidence has occurred. The reports of this incident become so viral that this news spread like fire not only in Himachal Pradesh, but around the world.

Even Chief Minister of Hiamchal Pradesh Virbhadra Singh issued statement on this matter and appointed a female IPS officer to investigate this matter.

Message by CM -
"Virbhadra Singh - Please help the police if you have any information about the case and request the media not to publish false information. Sharing a press release made by Kangra Police today (Post by Admin)"
 Press Note Copy-


I do belong to Hiamchal Pradesh; therefore, this news got my attention and made me worried. Today, there is a big confusion and doubt in the minds of people of Hiamchal Pradesh and in India that what is the real matter.

Why this matter becomes so viral on social media? If there is no fire, then why so much smoke? Has there been any political pressure to save culprit? Or It is a try to defame present Congress government or its minister?

Now the Cyber cell of Hiamchal Pradesh police is investigating from where all this started.

It is very important to catch the real culprits in this case whether they are rapists or the people who circulated the false news.
