A post is being shared on social media where a woman is seen thrashing a man and another woman covering her face with a dupatta. The post claims that the man in the video is the district president of the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), who is caught cheating on his wife with a co-worker. There are a few other posts also doing the rounds on the internet (here and here). Let’s fact-check the claim made in the post through this article.
Claim: The Aam Aadmi Party district president, Agra, was caught cheating on his wife with a co-worker.
Fact: As per media reports, the man in the video was caught by his wife cheating on her in a hotel room His name is Dinesh; he reportedly works at a hospital in Agra. The Aam Aadmi Party’s district president of Agra, Dheeraj Baghel, has clarified through a tweet that he is not the person seen in the video. Hence the claim made in the post is FALSE.
We ran a keyword search on the internet and found multiple news reports about the video. They can be read here, here and here. As per these reports, a man was caught cheating on his wife with another woman in a hotel room in Agra. Neelam, the man’s wife, reached the hotel and hit his husband, Dinesh and the other woman.
Under the tweet of Zee News journalist Tushar Srivastava, a person named Dheeraj Baghel commented that he is the district president of the Aam Aadmi Party, Agra and clarified that he is not the person who is getting beaten in the video. His photo does not match the person in the video. Tushar Srivastava had later deleted his tweet.
To sum up, this man caught cheating on his wife is not the district president of Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) Agra.
