Fact Check: Nirbaya case counsel Seema Samridhi is not on worlds most talented women list

Hyderabad: Social media users claim that Seema Samridhi Kushwah, who was Delhi Nirbhaya case counsel, has been named one of the six most talented women in the world.


The post said Seema Samridhi is a senior Supreme Court lawyer.

Fact Check

The claim is False.

NewsMeter searched for the list of the worlds' six top talented women. However, we did not find any such list.

We then tried to search more about Seema Samridhi as the post mentions her to be a senior lawyer of the Supreme Court.

We did not find any reports that designated her as senior lawyer.

Seema Samridhi also known as Seema Samridhi Kushwaha (born 10 January 1982) is an advocate at the Supreme Court of India. She is known for being legal counsel of victim in 2012 Delhi gang rape and murder case, read a Wikipedia post.


We then searched the same on her social media handles. It was clearly mentioned that she is an advocate.



It is therefore evident that the claim is False. There is neither any such list nor is Seema Samridhi a senior lawyer. Seema is an advocate and legal advisor of Nirbhaya Jyoti Trust.

Claim Review:Seema Samridhi Kushwah joined the list of Top 6 most talented women in the world.
