FCAT CHECK:- AAP activist Nikita Jacob who is absconding in the toolkit and violence case

On February 15, Delhi High Court lawyer Prashant Patel Umrao posted a picture of a woman with Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal with the message, “आआपार्टी कार्यकर्ता निकिता जैकब जो #Toolkit और हिंसा मामले में फरार है।  He claimed that the woman in the image is Mumbai-based lawyer-activist Nikita Jacob. A non-bailable warrant was issued against her in connection with the toolkit shared by Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg over the ongoing farmers’ protest.

FACT

Aam Aadmi Party workers that pointed out that the woman in the picture is not Nikita Jacob but AAP activist Ankita Shah.

Ankita Shah had shared her image with Arvind Kejriwal on Facebook on March 3, 2019.

An image of AAP activist Ankita Shah was therefore shared with the false claim that she is lawyer-activist Nikita Jacob with Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal.
