Spread the truth:

A video of two men hacking another man with an axe going viral on social media. It’s being claimed that the video represents the latest incident from Rajasthan’s Jaisalmer where a man named Rewat Singh was hacked to death.


The viral video has been shared on Facebook and claiming that Jihadi terrorists in Jaisalmer, Rajasthan’s Pokhran village killed Rewant Singh because he objected to them flouting lockdown.

The Facebook page विश्व हिन्दू रक्षा संगठन-बिहार  shared the video with this claim in Hindi “लॉक डाउन के दौरान जिहादी आतंकवादियो को घर से दूर रहने को कहना पड़ा भारी एक हिंदू भाई रेवत सिंह तंवर माडवा ( पोकरण) की हत्या कर दी प्रशासन से निवेदन है कि दोषियों तुरंत गिरफ्तार करें। सब्र टूट गया तो सम्भालना मुश्किल हो जाएगा.”








Although the news is true, a man was killed but the viral video is from Pakistan and not from Rajasthan.

Dainik Jagran reported that the Rewat Singh had taken part in PM Modi’s ‘thali Bajao’ event on March 22 and attacked by some locals on April 4, seeing the critical condition, he was brought to the hospital in Jodhpur but after some time the young man died during the treatment.

But the video is from Pakistan, not Rajasthan. With the keyframes from the video and after the reverse image search that led us to the tweet where the same video was shared by the Pakistani user.  Another man replied to this tweet and wrote that two men responsible for the brutal act have been arrested.

With followed keyword searches also led us to reports by Pakistani Media outlets. The incident was reported by The Nation on March 25 says that the two men allegedly chopped both legs and both arms of a boy of Chak 179 GB, Gojra on Tuesday.” Gojra is located in Pakistan’s Toba Tek Singh in Punjab. The incident was also covered by the Dawn newspaper

This confirms that the video of the brutal act was from Pakistan and falsely linked to an incident in Rajasthan’s Jaisalmer where a man was allegedly hacked to death by a group of Muslim men.
