A 26-year-old Indian journalist has been at the receiving end of death threats from hard-line groups in the country for helping save Kashmiri students post Pulwana attack.

Earlier on February 14, a Kashmiri youth had rammed a vehicle filled with explosives into a convoy of security personnel, killing 40 Indian soldiers in Indian occupied Kashmir (IoK).

 

Following a raft of incidents of Kashmiris being attacked across India, Sagrika Kissu helped arrange lodging and transport for 18 students who left the cities of Ambala, Dehradun and Jaipur.
