An image of a man with lashes on his back is being shared with the claim that he is a Tablighi Jamaat member and he was beaten up by UP Police for misbehaving with a nurse in the Ghaziabad quarantine. ‘FACTLY’ has found that the image is not related to any recent incident, and has nothing to with any incident in a quarantine facility. The image is found to exist on the internet at least since July 2019.
It is also to be noted that on 02 April 2020, nurses working at MMG district hospital in Ghaziabad, have accused that six persons associated with the Tablighi Jamaat, who were brought to the hospital for quarantine, behaved inappropriately and complained to Medical Superintendent Ravinder Singh, who wrote to the Uttar Pradesh Police. Ghaziabad SSP, Kalanidhi Naithani said “An FIR has been registered on a complaint that patients admitted at hospital’s (MMG District Hospital) isolation ward were misbehaving with hospital staff. It has been directed to ensure fair investigation in the matter,”
