A robbery video is being shared on social media with a claim that the robbery happened at Sarvodaya Mandir in Ghatkopar (Mumbai). Let’s try to analyze the claim made in the post.
Claim: Robbery video taken at Sarvodaya Mandir in Ghatkopar (Mumbai).
Fact: The incident happened in Karachi, not in Mumbai. Gulshan-e-Iqbal Police (Karachi) have already arrested two minor children who were involved in the robbery. Hence the claim made in the post is FALSE.
When the screenshots of the video were run through the Yandex Reverse Image Search, a tweet by ‘Dawn News’ on the incident can be found in the search results. ‘Dawn News’ has tweeted the same video with the hashtags ‘#Karachi #Robbery #DawnNews #Pakistan’.
Also, many YouTube videos about the incident can be found in the search results. One of YouTube videos has the title ‘Children Arrested by Gulshan Police’. So when searched on Google with the keywords in Urdu, a news article about this incident was found in the search results. In the article, it can be read that ‘Gulshan-e-Iqbal police have arrested two minor children who were found guilty of robbery near Hill Park in Gulshan-e-Iqbal area of Karachi.’
To sum it up, Karachi robbery video is being falsely shared as robbery in Mumbai.
