A video is becoming increasingly viral on social media. It can be seen in this video that the dead body of a policeman lying in blood on the road. There is a crowd around the corpse, in which some members of the Muslim community can be seen. In this video, a man can be seen talking angrily at another person.

Users sharing this video are claiming that this policeman has been killed by the Muslim community. Sharing this video, Pt. Varun Parashar (@VarunPa15556594) tweeted- “Muslim rioters kill policeman in Kolkata, then threaten his partner too. @Mamata Banerjee”

At the same time, a user named SS Nauhwar (@Sonvir_Singh12) tweeted- “Just in Kolkata, rioters killed a policeman, after that his partner is also threatening. Tag any Bengali [email protected] brother.

Fact Check:

To make the video go viral, the team of DFRAC reverse searched some of the frames of the video. During this, we found a video uploaded on 10th June 2022 on the official YouTube channel of “NDTV”. The caption of this video “Cop Opens Fire Outside Bangladesh High Commission In Kolkata, Kills Self”

 

According to this NDTV report, a police constable posted at the Bangladesh High Commission in Kolkata fired several rounds before shooting himself today. A woman reportedly died during this firing.

Conclusion:

This fact check proves that the claims being made by social media users are misleading and false. The death of the policeman does not appear to be from the protesters, but it appears to be a suicide committed by him.
