National level wrestler Nisha Dahiya has dismissed reports of her being shot dead. Earlier, reports emerged which claimed that bronze-medalist Nisha Dahiya was shot dead in Haryana when she was practicing in an academy. As reports started doing rounds on social media, a few of Nisha’s friends started refuting the news and claimed that she’s alive. Olympic wrestler Sakshi Malik also tweeted a picture of Nisha with her and captioned the post “She’s alive”. 

A few hours back, Nisha released a statement through the Twitter handle of the Wrestling Federation of India. In the video, she can be seen sitting beside Sakshi. Nisha said, “Hello, mera naam Nisha hain, aur main Senior Nationals khelne aayi hoon Gonda mein, aur main bilkul theek hoon, aur yeh fake news hai, main bilkul theek hoon (Hello, my name is Nisha, and I have come to play Senior Nationals in Gonda, and I am completely fine, this is fake news, I am completely all right)”.  ANI shared this video on its Twitter handle.
