This is a 9 year old video and is not related to any religion.
Video is from October 2011, The maid’s name was Asha Kaushal.
The actual incident has no communal angle to it. The video has a date and time stamp on top and it shows the date as 17th October, 2011. Following this information, with a key word search, it was found that Times of India and Dainik Jagaran have reported about the same when the incident occurred 9 years ago. The maid’s name was Asha Kaushal. She had given several reasons for her crime, one was the employer’s disagreeable behaviour towards her young daughter and she carried out the crime to teach the employer a lesson.
India Today claimed in an article where they fact checked the clip, claimed that they reached out to Praveen Dubey, a reporter from News24 and he denied the claim that the accused was Muslim.
The clip was paired with a wrong narrative to attack a particular community.
