Medalist Wrestler Nisha Dahiya Shot Dead


Verification: The medalist wrestler Nisha Dahiya is alive and is at Gonda for the event

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.

Nisha Dahiya herself posted a video on her Instagram about the fake news. She writes “M bilkul theek hu m senior national khelne gonda aai hui hu.”


Sakshi Malik, Proud Indian. 2016 Summer Olympics Bronze medalistThird place medal (58 kg)wrestler tweeted about the well-being of Nisha Dahiya with her photo.

Nisha Dahiya who is shot dead and medalist Wrestler Nisha Dahiya are two different people. A wrestler from Panipat is at an event in Gonda as she says in her video of clarification. SP Soipat clarified in a tweet shared by ANI.

Along with other main media, NDTV also ran the incorrect report and apologized later:

PM Modi congratulated the winners of the U23 World Wrestling Championship 2021 which includes Nisha Dahiya’s name.
