Upon doing a Google Reverse Image Search and Yandex search of the screenshots taken of the viral video, it was found that the video is from a Youtube channel named, ‘CWE’ which stands for Continental Wrestling Entertainment. It is a channel that entertains people through wrestling. The video is titled, “Singham Dubey Ji is jealous to see baba reading palm of Aunty”. The video can be found on their YouTube channel.
The entire video is staged and is posted for the sake of fun and entertainment. The cop who is seen choked by the sadhu baba is Manish Dubey, who goes by the stage name ‘Singham Dubey’, is a professional wrestler and is currently training under Dalip Singh Rana, also known as ‘The Great Khali’.
The clipping that is going viral is cropped out of the YouTube video meant solely for entertainment and given a communal angle, in a slightly sarcastic tone as seen in the caption. Hence, the viral video is misleading and false.
