BJP Supporter Gunja Kapoor, Followed by PM on Twitter, Caught in Burqa at Shaheen Bagh
NEW DELHI, FEBRUARY 05— BJP supporter and political analyst Gunja Kapoor was caught at Shaheen Bagh protest site Wednesday noon as she was wearing Burqa and making videos of the protesters. She was taken away by the police. She is followed by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Twitter.
“हिन्दू महिला @gunjakapoor बुर्के में कैमरा लगाकर शाहीन बाग में पकड़ी गईं पुलिस पकड़ के लेकर गई। She is YouTuber of Right Narrative channel @right_narrative & followed by our PM,” tweeted organizers of the Shaheen Bagh protest.
“As election is inching closer, RW goons trying all means to attack on us,” they also said.
Only yesterday, Gunja had on Twitter slammed AAP for “sending” its alleged worker to open fire at Shaheen Bagh, referring to the shooter Kapil Gurjar whose photos with AAP leader appeared yesterday. Three days back, he was caught at Shaheen Bagh as he opened fire near the protest site.
“Did Arvind Kejriwal & Sanjay Singh want to kill women & children protesting at #ShaheenBagh,” Gunja had tweeted on Tuesday.
So now the BJP sent @gunjakapoor in Burqa to Shaheenbagh to create fake propaganda videos to not only defame the women protestors but to create unrest before the elections.— Gaurav Pandhi (@GauravPandhi) February 5, 2020

Videos show that when women protesters got suspicous of her, they asked her name. First she said her name was Barkhat. But soon it was revealed she was Gunja Kapoor. The women protesters put her in a chair and cordoned off her from the crowd. They politely asked her why she had to wear Burqa. The women protesters kept their under safety cover until police came and took her away.
