FACT CHECK

NewsMobile fact-checked the above claim and found it to be FAKE.
Moradabad Police posted a picture on Twitter explaining that the conflict was not about installing the Indian flag.

In the tweet, the police clarified that there was a dispute between the two families over blocking the road by keeping their buffalos on the road. The statement names a person called Abul Kalam, who had originally posted the video. He and his family used to tie their buffalos on the road which caused trouble to his cousin brother Irshad while crossing the road.


Moradabad police posted a video, where Abul Kalam himself confessed that he had put out a false notion because he was angry owing to a personal dispute. He added that the Indian flag had been there for a while.
To put the issue to rest, the police posted the video of the flag as well which was installed on the terrace.

 In conclusion, the above information proves that the dispute that took place among neighbours over a road blockage was intentionally shared with a false narrative.
