Medalist Wrestler Nisha Dahiya Shot Dead

Fake news about the murder of Wrestler Nisha Dahiya is falsely being shared on main media. She is very well alive and shared the video telling her well-being. Confusion was probably created due to the same names. The athlete with the same name (Nisha Dahiya) died was from Halalpur village Sonipat while the photo shared with the report is of athlete Nisha Dahiya from Panipat. Check the link shared below to know the facts:
Wrestling coach Randhir Malik, who traveled with the Indian women team to the Worlds, where Nisha won a bronze, shared some information about the woman who had died with The New Indian Express.
“The girl who died was a newcomer hailing from Halalpur village in Sonipat. She is also Nisha Dahiya but not the one who went to the U23 World championship. She comes from a small village and has just started playing the sport,” he said.
