Death threat to JU's woman student

Kolkata: A woman student of the Jadavpur University has lodged a police complaint after she received death threats for her post on Facebook.
Triparna Dey Sarkar, a post-graduate student of the university, complained to Jadavpur police after Facebook posts on her wall threatened to "set you on fire" and demanded she be hanged.
Sarkar said she was dubbed a "traitor feminist" by a Facebook Group named 'narendra modi sena west bengal2' after she uploaded a post saying "Kashmir mange azadi, Manipur mange azadi, Kerala ko chheen lenge (Kashmir demands freedom, Manipur demands freedom, we will snatch Kerala)".
Sarkar later posted that she would continue to be a feminist so long as patriarchy existed in society.

"I am a patriot. I have faith in the Indian Constitution. I am proud to be an Indian."
