Fact Check: Was the youth celebrating the victory of Pakistan beaten up by the police?
Pakistan defeated India on 24 October in the T20 World Cup. But the controversy of this match continues till now on social media. First Cricketer Mohammed Shami, Captain Virat Kohli and opener Rohit Sharma were targeted, then now common people are being targeted there.
One such video is going viral on social media. In this video a man is being beaten up. It is being claimed that the person being beaten up in the video was celebrating the victory of Pakistan. After which the UP police beat him fiercely.
Our team investigated this viral video. On Google reverse image search, we found the video of ABP Live.com, which was published on 28 May 2021 with a news story. This report shows that this video is from Jalna, Maharashtra. It was told in the news that the person who was beaten up is Shivraj Nariyalwale, Youth Secretary of Bharatiya Janata Party. The incident happened on 9 April.
BJP Jalna Youth Secretary Shivraj Nariyalwale was beaten by police at Deepak Hospital on April 9, his video has now gone viral on social media.

Viral Video was also posted by BJP leader Kirit Somaiya from his Twitter handle on 27 May 2021. He also wrote that the BJP leader is being beaten up by the police. This incident should be investigated. After which an inquiry was ordered into the incident.
This investigation proves that the claims being made on social media are false and misleading. This video is not from UP but from Maharashtra and the youth who is being beaten up has nothing to do with celebrating Pakistan’s victory.
