Mumbai: Virender Sehwag is known for his exploits on Twitter, and the former India vice-captain has come into limelight again, due to one of his recent tweets.

Sehwag, who is known to tweet on different issues other than cricket as well, took the opportunity to troll a Delhi University college student on Sunday.

 

DU student Gurmehar Kaur recently came into the limelight for condemning the Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) for their alleged attacks on students and teachers in Ramjas College in New Delhi.

As the post by Gurmehar went viral, another video by the DU student, which was posted earlier, started to do the rounds on the internet as well.

In one of the shots in this video, Gurmehar, whose father late Captain Mandeep Singh was martyred in the Kargil war, was seen holding a placard saying, "Pakistan did not kill my dad, war killed him”.

 

Sehwag took this opportunity to troll the student, as he posed this on social media.

However, Sehwag’s move backfired, as attracted a lot of criticism on Twitter.

However, many of the fans also came out to support the 'Nawab of Najafgarh' on Twitter, exposing the sensitiveness of the issue at hand here.
