Viral Message Verification:- The social media is buzz with the fake news of the 5th accused in the Nirbhaya rape and murder case. The killer has been also given a name as Mohammed Afroz. However no one has real information on the juvenile.
The Nirbhaya gang rape case that took place in Delhi in 2012 shook the conscience of the nation.
When we searched the picture we found a twitter account linked to the picture. The twitter account is in the name of mohammad afroz. We can also find only two tweets associated to this account, Bismillah hir rahman nir rahim yaa jabbar ya gaffar ? Sare jaha ke palan haar meri ?ek ek sans aap ka mohtaaz hai? Ya rabbul alaa min and the last tweet is dated 2013.

In depth: The accused in the Nirbhaya case was arrested within 24 hours of the crime. As per the news published in NDTV, “It took the Delhi Police less than 24 hours to track down the main accused in the horrific gang-rape and torture of a 23-year-old medical student in Delhi on Sunday evening. Three men have been arrested and three others have been detained.” .
So all the accused along with the juvenile accused was sentenced and was sent for 3 years to a reform facility in August 2013. He was released in December 2015. Now if the accused in the picture is the juvenile than it is quite not possible that the he would have tweeted in September 2013 from a correctional facility.
People who share before any information must make sure that they are not spreading a fake message.
