On October 24,2021, a video started to circulate online which looks like CCTV footage of a restaurant. In the footage, it can be seen that the police intercepts a meal between a man and a woman and asks the boy to empty his pockets. Upon emptying his pockets, the police arrest him for attempting to drug the female to sexually harass her. 

The footage is black and white along with captions set down below. The video was posted several times by different users on Facebook and Instagram. Users claimed that this boy is a Muslim who attempted to drug the Hindu girl and engage in ‘jihad’.

Fact-Check: 

However, upon reverse image searching the key frames of the video we found that the video was posted by actress Hamsa Nandini who along with the video wrote that the video was only created for educational purposes.

Additionally, at the end of the video posted by the users, it can be seen that the makers of the video did add a disclaimer that the video is only for educational purposes. The video also makes no mention of the boy being Hindu or Muslim rendering this claim competely fake.
