A video is being shared on social media claiming it as visuals of a burqa-clad man caught kidnapping a child on a street. This video shows a few people exposing a man in a burqa kidnapping a child. Let’s verify the claim made in the post.

Claim: Video of a burqa-clad man caught kidnapping a child.

Fact: The video shared in the post is a scripted one. This video was created for entertainment and educational purposes by a video creator named Sonu Choudhary. The video does not show a real incident. Hence, the claim made in the post is FALSE.

On reverse image search of the screenshots of the video, we could not find any reliable sources related to this video. When we searched with relevant keywords on the internet, we found the same video posted with a similar claim on a Facebook page. But, the Facebook recommendation attached below this post reads, “Watch more original videos by: Sonu Choudhary Films”.

When we searched for further sources using this information, we found the same video published on a Facebook page named ‘Sonu Chaudhary Films’. Sonu Choudhary is a video creator who publishes pranks and scripted videos on social media.

At 0:40 minutes of the video, we could see a disclaimer below the video. The disclaimer states, “The content made in this video should be considered for entertainment purpose only, information contained herein is not intended to be source of advice or credit analysis with respect to the information presented, any action you take inspiring from this video is strictly at your own risk and we will not be liable for any losses and damages in connection with the use of information available in this video”.    

Sonu Chaudhary published the same video on his YouTube channel. A few other scripted videos published on Sonu Chaudhary’s social media handles can be seen here and here.

To sum it up, a scripted video is being shared as real incident of a burqa-clad man caught kidnapping a child.

Share.
