Truth

The video is from  Ghaziabad, Uttar Pradesh, Not Delhi

The video has been viral since 26th Novmber, with all claiming it to be from Delhi. We have tried all typical fact checking tools but couldn’t find the truth. The viral videos are too low is resolution where the text/location in the background couldn’t be found. Our usual method is to listen carefully if someone mentions the place, or in background if the name/place is written. In this case, Police uniform which has the initials of state and state’s badge. But since this was too low on quality we couldn’t find that too.

But we heard the leader saying out loud “Facebook pe live karo” (Make this live om Facebook). This hint led us to search more on Facebook using different keywords which finally got us the proof.

We found the earliest possible upload on Facebook (23rd Nov 21) of the video in highest resolution by Dildarpuri Goswami who claims to be working for Akhada TV. He claimed this as from Vijay Nagar, Ghaziabad.

Further on looking close in the video, we found the following proofs –

In the Background you can see –
“प्राथमिक विद्यालय मिर्ज़ापुर
नगर क्षेत्र – ग़ाज़ियाबाद”

Translation – “Primary School, Mirzapur, City Area – Ghaziabad”

 

Secondly, the Police is also from Uttar Pradesh, not Delhi.

The left image is a screenshot from the video while the smaller one in the middle and the right one is taken from Google.

Uttar Pradesh Police – Three characters. The Blue and Red badge also matches with UP Police with a circle divided in 3 parts

 

So the video is from Uttar Pradesh, not Delhi as is viral.
