Results of Reverse Image Search identifies woman as Allola Divya Reddy 

In order to know about the person speaking in the video, we did a reverse image search by generating the keyframes of the video. As a result of our reverse image search we found several media links which suggested that the person who is being talked about is Divya Allola Reddy. 

In one of the findings, we found a link to a website which has published more pictures of the woman said to be Divya Allola Reddy.

When we further checked the website, we got to know that KliMom is a Hyderabad based farm cafe and is founded by Divya Allola Reddy. On their website’s contact us page, we found their social media handles. We found the same video as we checked their facebook page which was published on 2 June, 2018. The description of the video reads, “Watch Allola Divya Reddy speak on winning the National Gopal Ratna Award 2018. She talks about her movement for increasing the population of desi cows and healthy milk through KLIMOM. Visit https://bit.ly/2sxXSUw #GopalRatnaAward2018 #WorldMilkDay2018”

At 11 seconds in the video, the moderator of the event can be heard addressing her as ‘Smt Allola Divya Reddy from Telangana’ and at 48 seconds, she introduces herself as ‘Allola Divya Reddy’. After watching the full video, we reach to the conclusion that the woman speaking in the video is not Hyderabad Rape victim but Allola Divya Reddy who is the founder of KliMom which as informed above is a Hyderabad based farm cafe.

We then checked the Twitter profile link mentioned on the KliMom website. The Twitter handle has shared a picture of Allola Divya Reddy receiving an award from the then Union Agriculture Minister Radha Mohan Singh. The description of the tweet reads, “Allola Divya Reddy, founder Klimom, has been awarded with the National Gopal Ratna Award on 1st June 2018 by the Government of India. The Hon’ble Union Minister Shri Radha Mohan Singh, Ministry of Animal Husbandry, gave away the award to Klimom for its commendable effort.” The description of the tweet made by KliMom clarifies the context of the video and testifies the person speaking in it.

Woman claimed to be Hyderabad Rape Victim turned out to KliMom founder Allola Divya Reddy

As we found all the details about the woman speaking in the video is Allola Divya Reddy who was speaking at National Gopal Ratna Award on 1st June 2018 and is not the Hyderabad Rape Victim.
