A video accompanied by a post is being widely shared on social media claiming that the visuals of men assaulting women are from Rajasthan. Let us fact-check the claim made in the post.

The archived version of the post can be seen here.

Claim: Video of men brutally thrashing women in Rajasthan.

Fact: The video is from Amethi in Uttar Pradesh and not from Rajasthan. In the video, a mother and her daughter were publicly thrashed in Amethi because they were protesting the grabbing of their land. The incident happened in Bhatgawan village of Gauriganj Police Station area which comes under the Amethi Police. The video of an incident of land dispute in Rajasthan went viral when a woman was seen trying to attack a JCB. The woman was reportedly assaulted. Hence, the claim made in the post is FALSE.

When reverse image search is done on the screenshots of the video, a video with similar visuals is found in a tweet. The tweet was made on 18 November 2021 by a local journalist, who says that a woman and her daughter were beaten up when they were opposing a land grab by some men in Bhatgawan village. To his tweet, the Amethi Police replied by saying that necessary legal action is being taken by registering a case (15 November 2021) under relevant sections, at the Gauriganj Police Station. The Gauriganj Police Station comes under the district of Amethi.
