The text on the picture read: “Finally a new law has passed by Modi government today… as per IPC 233 If a girl is suspected to be raped or getting raped. then she has a supreme right to kill that person or harm that person as dangerously as she can and the girl won’t be blamed for the murder. Tell as many as you can it’s your power to create awareness.”
NewsMobile fact-checked the above claim and found it to FAKE.
Press Information Bureau (PIB) in a Tweet rubbished the above claim.
