We performed a reverse image search on the picture and found that a video of the same victim was posted in 2018. The video states that the woman in the video is “Arsha Pandey” .
But we also found news reports on the same woman and as per Dainik Jagran the woman in the image is indeed ‘Arshi Pandey’. She was injured when a group of unidentified men entered her house in Halwani, Uttarakhand resulting in the death of her mother Poonam Pandey (not the actress) and their pet dog.
Since the image used is not of Poonam Pandey, this claim is false.
