About 2,000 people, mostly college students, had gathered at the iconic Gateway of India on January 7 to protest against the attack by masked goons on the Jawaharlal Nehru Campus in Delhi as well as the Citizenship (Amendment) Act and the proposed National Register of Citizens. Images and videos of the woman, lated identified as Prabhu, holding a large poster with the words “Free Kashmir” written in big bold letters, had gone viral on social media.
