On putting the image through Reverse Image Search, we found an NDTV article dated August 14, 2012.  The title of the article was “Have you seen the rioters who vandalised the Amar Jawan memorial?”

According to the article, the picture was clicked by Mid-Day’s photographer  Atul Kamble during a protest at Azad Maidan. The memorial, unveiled in 2009, was erected in memory of two sepoys — Sayyed Hussein and Mangal Cadiya — who were martyred during the Sepoy Mutiny of 1857.
The above information proves that the picture is old.
