0 105

A video in which people can be seen hurling stones on Police is being shared on social media with a claim that it is from the recent Delhi riots.
“ये कश्मीर को दिल्ली ले आये हैं
पत्थर नहीं फेंक रहे हैं ये बल्कि भारत को तोड़ रहे हैं ..यह सब बरखा,रविश,डिसूज़ा, राजदीप, Wire,Quint,BBC,Scroll,राणा अयूब,अरफ़ा, NDTV नहीं दिखायेंगे !
यह Anti-CAA आंदोलन नहीं है बल्कि आतंकवाद है और इसका कंट्रोल रूम रावलपिंडी में है !” the caption read.


NewsMobile fact-checked the above post and found the claim to be false.
On taking out the keyframes of the video and running them through Reverse image search, along with a combination of few keywords like ‘police, stone-pelting’, we found the same video on YouTube.
TV9 Gujarati uploaded the same video on Dec 19, 2019. “Anti-CAA protest in Shah-e-Alam area, Protesters pelted stones on Police van | Ahmedabad – Tv9” the caption read.

We also found a news bulletin by Republic TV on the same dated Dec 2019.

The above information proves that the video is old and is from Gujarat and NOT Delhi.
