A video is getting viral on social media platforms. This viral video shows a man slipping while kicking a football. Social media users are claiming that the respected Dr. Udit Raj is the person who slips over the football while kicking it.
An account by the name of Hasna Zaroori Hai posted this video on Twitter and wrote: “Inaugurating the match respected Dr. Mr. Udit Raj”.
A user named Nitin also posted a similar video on Twitter with the same caption.
Another user by the name of Anuj Thakur shares this video on Twitter with the same caption.
Furthermore, two Facebook users have also shared this video with the same caption.
To know the truth behind this viral video, the team of Dfrac has converted this video into keyframes. The team found similar videos on YouTube and other social media websites during this process.
A news website ‘The Correspondent’ posted this video five years ago on August 11, 2017 on its YouTube account with the title: “Congress MLA Gopal Chandra Roy Slipped while kicking a football”.
Not only this, but a YouTube-based channel named Stv Tripura also posted this same video, five years ago on August 9, 2017, captioning: “MLA Gopal Roy tumble down In Astabal Maydan Agartala 09 08 2017”.
Hence, it is clear from Dfrac’s Fact-Check that the viral video is misleading since it does not belong to Respected Dr. Udit Raj. This viral video had been posted five years ago in the year of 2017, in which Congress MLA Gopal Chandra Roy, had slipped while kicking a football during the inauguration of a football tournament.
