    Sanchitya Ruth Lenin claimed to be an orphan from the adivasi community

    An obituary was released online but also quickly retracted

    This was particularly enraging for many people who donated money for breast cancer treatment

A woman who claimed to have been named Sanchitya Ruth Lenin who claimed to be an orphan from the adivasi community and suffering from breast cancer is alleged to have faked her credentials and also her alleged death from the cancer. 

An obituary was released online but also quickly retracted as the allegation of grifting started making rounds. This was particularly enraging for many people who donated money thinking it is for a genuine cause. “There was financial difficulty, Sanch was an orphan and she told us she has little to no family support and also no medical insurance. So we decided to raise funds for the initial treatment and take it from there. We put the fundraiser on and the whole community came together, we raised the money quickly. I sent the money to Sanch in chunks. By that time she had sent us two reports, biopsy one and a pet scan. But after those reports we didn’t receive any. We kept waiting for related documents. Her treatment plan became more and more vague,” Ankur, her ex-boyfriend stated. 

The issue came to the forefront when Sanchitya’s friend started digging into the document on the basis of suspicion. “Rheea decided to cross reference the reports Sanch did send us. She found a discrepancy in legit looking reports, we kept looking and found out both reports were fake. We found a paper trail leading to Sanch’s school. We found out Sanch had lied to us about her name, her age, her family, especially her parents. They are alive. She was never an orphan. We confronted her about all of this, she never gave us any straight answers and kept deflecting and making excuses. She was rattled enough to fake her death the next day,” Ankur added.
