New Delhi, Feb 27: Minister of State for Home Kiren Rijiju on Monday wondered who was 'polluting' the mind of a Delhi University student campaigning on social media against the ABVP.

Gurmehar Kaur, a student of Lady Shri Ram College and daughter of an army officer killed in the Kargil war, launched a social media campaign against the ABVP after the violence in Ramjas College.

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

She then received rape and life threats on social media by some who called her 'anti-national'.

In response to Kaur's campaign, the minister said: "Who's polluting this young girl's mind?"

Clashes took place at Delhi University's Ramjas college on February 22 after Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad members forced the cancellation of a seminar and then disrupted a march.
