Old video falsely shared as migrants with no social distancing at the UP border


A video of a huge crowd pushing one another for space is being shared on Facebook claiming that the incident happened at the UP border during the current lockdown. FACTLY has found the video to be old and not related to any recent incident. The video was found to exist on the internet at least since October 2019. FACTLY could not find the original context of the video. The video is being shared in the wake of news reports that the UP Police have stopped migrants at the state border as they lacked valid passes for entry. Also, there are other videos of people not following social distancing in UP, but the posted video is an old one.
