A video is being shared widely on social media with a claim that it shows protestors attacking the police in Delhi. Let’s try to analyze the claim made in the post.
Claim: Video of stone-pelting on police by the protestors in Delhi.
Fact: The video is an old one. It was taken in Ahmedabad in December 2019. Hence the claim made in the post is FALSE.
When the screenshots of the video were run through Google Reverse Image Search, the same video was found on YouTube with the title: ‘Angry Protesters Throwing Stones on Police Jeep at Ahmedabad’. The video was uploaded on YouTube in December 2019. So, when searched with the keywords, a similar video was found to be uploaded by ‘TV9 Gujarati’, on 19 December 2019, with the title: ‘Anti-CAA protest in Shah-e-Alam area, Protesters pelted stones on Police van | Ahmedabad’. More videos related to the incident can be watched here and here.
To sum it up, an old video from Ahmedabad falsely shared as ‘stone pelting on police by the protestors in Delhi’.
