Fact Check – Video is from Jaipur not Delhi

A reverse image search of video key-frames found that the incident took place in Jaipur, Rajasthan.

A report published by the Patrika on August 11, 2020.

The Facebook page of INC Punjab used an old video with the same claim despite it being fact-checked a year ago rendering this claim completely false and misleading.

Note: What you can do about false/misleading news

Getting authentic news is becoming increasingly difficult on all social media platforms. It can get overwhelming for an individual to always try and source verified content. Had this video been reported a year ago, it would not have resurfaced today and garnered millions of views. We encourage our readers to immediately report any misleading information posted on all social media platforms.
