An old video from Karachi (Pakistan) is being falsely shared as women escaping quarantine in Bangalore


A video of burqa-clad women escaping from a house is being shared on social media with a claim that they are escaping from quarantine in Shivaji Nagar, Bangalore. But FACTLY found that the same video was found to be uploaded on YouTube and Facebook in 2015 with the title: ‘Sex workers fleeing after FIA raid at a brothel in Karachi’. So, it can be concluded that it is an old video and not related to the current lockdown. More information about the incident in the video can be read in an article debunked by FACTLY earlier.
