Claim:

A Hindu youth was stabbed to death by Muslims in Dasna, Ghaziabad district of UP.

Fact Check:

The Logical Indian Fact Check team verified the claim and found it to be false. The victim was identified as Shahrukh, a Muslim youth.

During the initial investigation, while searching for the veracity of the viral video, we found a comment on a tweet by the Twitter handle of Ghaziabad Police dated 24 February 2022. Responding to the tweet, Ghaziabad police wrote, "The said incident is not related to district Ghaziabad."

We then did a keyword search and found similar footage in a video report of Dilli Tak dated 1 January 2022. According to the video report, the viral video is of Seemapuri, Delhi. The young man being murdered is identified as Shahrukh, who was stabbed to death by a group of people.

According to the report of News18 dated 30 December 2021, three youths together in the Seemapuri area of ​​Delhi had killed a youth named Shahrukh by stabbing him with a knife. The police had arrested Zubair(30), Zafar (20) and Aditya (18), who were involved in this case. According to the police, it was a case of mutual enmity. Shahrukh was reportedly having an affair with Zubair's sister.

We also found a tweet of Delhi Police in which the statement of DCP Shahdara can be seen on this incident. According to it. Shahrukh allegedly has a history of criminal activity, and he was released on bail from Dasna jail a few days before his murder.


Our investigation shows that the incident occurred in the Seemapuri area of ​​Delhi in December 2021 and has been falsely attributed to Dasna, Ghaziabad, as a place of incident. Also, the youth who died was not a Hindu but Muslim (Shahrukh) and no communal angle was involved in it. Hence, the viral claim is false.
