Truth

The man in the video is Admiral Girish Luthra, not late Pilot Deepak Sathe.

With the help of reverse image search using the keyframes from this video, we found a YouTube channel named as Vice Admiral Girish Luthra Retd.

On further investigations, we found a video on this channel dated 6th march 2019.

This further states that this video is ofย  Vice Admiral Girish Luthra now retired is singing a song at a ceremonial program and not of Late captain Deepak Sathe. On further investigation, we also found media reports about this viral video of Vice Admiral Girish Luthra.

Therefore in our investigation, it is clear that this video does not have any connection with the Late captain Deepak Sathe and instead it is of Retd Vice Admiral Girish Luthra. Hence the claims made on this viral video are false.
