Claim:

The viral video shows MP Police arresting Muslim women for pelting stones at Hindus in Khargone during Ram Navami Procession.

Fact Check:

The Logical Indian Fact Check team verified the viral claim and found it to be false. The viral video is from April 2020 during the Covid lockdown.

We extracted different keyframes from the viral video using the InVid tool and conducted a Google reverse image search. It led us to a video report of NDTV dated 15 April 2020, in which similar footage can be seen. The report's title reads in English, "Doctors, Cops Escorting Possible COVID-19 Patient Attacked In Moradabad, UP." According to the report, the viral video is from the Nawabpura area of Moradabad, Uttar Pradesh, when people attacked a team of doctors for taking a suspected patient of Covid-19. In this incident, two doctors and four policemen suffered severe injuries. About 100 people targeted ambulances and police vehicles.

According to a report of Amar Ujala dated 16 April 2020, Dr SC Agarwal, Pharmacist Sanjeev Kumar and EMT Pankaj Singh, who went with the ambulance, health workers Atarpal Singh, Aram Singh and ambulance driver Muniraj Singh were injured in stone-pelting. After the clash, the city imam explained to the people from the mosque through a loudspeaker that the police and health department had come to their help and requested to not pelt stones at them.

Our investigation shows that the viral video is from April 2020, when people in Muradabad, UP, attacked a team of doctors and cops who went Nawabpura area to take a suspected Covid patient. Police arrested several people, including women, in this incident. It has nothing to do with the Khargone violence. Hence, the viral claim is false.
