NewsMobile fact-checked the viral video and found the claim to be false.

In the video, the woman has been introduced as Dr Allola Divya Reddy. So, we searched on YouTube with relevant keywords and found the video uploaded by a YouTube channel Klimom on June 2, 2018.

“Allola Divya Reddy | National Gopal Ratna Award 2018 Winner | Desi Gaushala | Klimom” –  the video title read.

Dr Reddy is the founder of Hyderabad-based company, Klimom which manufactures and sells indigenous cow milk and various products made from it.

In an article published in the Deccan Chronicle on April 10, 2019, Divya Reddy is said to be 35-year-old whereas the Hyderabad rape victim was 26-years-old.

Moreover, the name of the rape victim, which cannot be cited due to legal reasons, was not Divya.

The above information proves that the claim attached to the viral video is false.
