Fact Check:

On reverse image search of different frames of this video on the internet, we found that this video is of a fight between two parties of a community in Bareilly in May 2021. This incident has been covered by Dainik Bhaskar and Etv Bharat.


According to Etv Bharat, there was a dispute over meat between Salim Qureshi and Jalis Banjara, residents of Madhotanda in the Bhojipura police station area. According to the police, there was a fight between the two over the price of meat. Within no time the quarrel escalated so much that fighting started between both the sides and openly waving weapons and firing was also done.

Bareilly Police had released its statement on Twitter upon it.

Conclusion:

DFRAC’s fact check proved that the claim being made by the users is fake, as the video through which the claim is being made is old and not from Kanpur, but from Bareilly.

Claim review: Some were openly firing recklessly in Kanpur riots.
