A set of images of JNUSU president Aishe Ghosh, who was in JNU hostile during the violence, is viral in which the bandage on her hand is seen on different hands, on left in first image, while on right in second. It’s viral claiming that she was pretending her hand to be injured and made a grave mistake by bandaging wrong hand which exposed her fake injury.
Shefali Vaidya tweeted –
“Alhamleninallah! It is a miracle. Aishee Ghosh’s broken hand got healed in a day and got broken again!
@anuragkashyap72 couldn’t you coach these dingbats in continuity?”
An Author of Swarajya Mag, Shefali’s tweet was retweeted more than 2000 times, deleted now, but archived here

Aishe’s left hand is injured in the violence. The other photo which shows her right hand injured is actually edited. It’s been flipped horizontally/mirrored, which switches left part on right and vice versa.
There had been many such Fake News debunked earlier, Ex MP CM Shivraj Chauhan’s hand injury, the hand with which Rahul Gandhi was saluting the National Flag.
The top left image out of the three which is viral is Fake/edited. You can see while a white colored placard is on her left, the men, a bald one and another with beard are actually sitting on her right.
In her press conference video below, you can see the white colored placard is on her right while both men, the bals and the one with the beard are on her right
The bottom photo is the real one, published in Indian Express
Director Anurag Kashyap tweeted a photo of Shefali Vaidya with similar editing to prove the editing to her
