NewsMobile fact-checked the above post and found the claim attached to it to be FAKE
In the news search, we found a news report in Dainik Jagran dated November 3rd, 2019 from the ‘bomb blast near the mosque, an injured’ headline.
According to the report, one person was seriously injured after a bomb blast near the mosque in Mochi Tola of Sasaram’s Nagar police station area. After the sound of the bombing, the entire area trembled for some time. In the bomb blast, 48-year-old Muhammad Seraj, who was present in the mosque complex, was seriously injured.
The bombing did not take place in the mosque, but in the empty ground near the mosque.
The police have arrested a Facebook user for spreading rumours about it on social media.
Hence, the Facebook post that went viral during the bomb-making in the mosque of Sasaram in Bihar and the recovery of more than 100 bombs is fake.
