Fact Check:

After performing our fact check analysis on this image, what we found out is that this lady sitting with the Congress leader and former JNU student union president Kanhaiya Kumar is not his teacher but his female friend, Saumya Mani Tripathi, a student of JNU. She uploaded this image on her Facebook account on March 5th 2016. Since then this image has been in discussion and is getting circulated with misleading claims.

Deccan News has also done a report on this matter where they have clearly said that the woman in the picture is a friend of Kanhaiya Kumar and not his teacher.
