A post with two images is being widely shared on Facebook. The images show Policemen holding posters of ‘NO NRC NO CAA’. Let’s analyze the authenticity of those images.
Claim: : Policemen holding placards of ‘NO NRC NO CAA’.
Fact: The images in the post are photoshopped. The original images do not show Policemen holding placards of ‘NO NRC NO CAA’. They are from the protests by Delhi Police in November, against the attack by lawyers on police personnel at the Tis Hazari Court complex. Hence, the claim is FALSE.
When the above images in the post are subjected to Google Reverse Image Search technique, they are found to be related to Delhi Police protests, in November, against the attack by lawyers on a few police personnel at the Tis Hazari Court complex. But those images do not show Police holding placards of ‘NO NRC NO CAB’.
From a November 2019 article of ‘The Hindu’, it can be found the image is that of Delhi Police officers holding placards at the Police headquarters (New Delhi) while protesting the attack by lawyers on Police. In that image, it can be seen that the placards do not have ‘NO NRC NO CAB’ on them. Another article of ‘The Hindu’ which reported about that incident had a video of that protests with the above photo as a thumbnail and it can be seen here.
From the article of ‘LiveMint’, the image was found to be that of Police personnel displaying placards during a protest against the repeated incidents of alleged violence against them by lawyers. In that image too, it can be seen that the posters do not have ‘NO NRC NO CAB’ on them.
To conclude, the images of Policemen holding placards of ‘NO NRC NO CAA’ are photoshopped.
