Claim:

Uttar Pradesh Police thrashed a boy for chanting Pro-Pakistan slogans.

Fact Check:

The Logical Indian Fact Check team verified the viral claim and found it to be false. The viral video is from 2021.

We extracted different keyframes from the viral video using the InVid tool and conducted a Google reverse image search during the initial investigation. It led us to a report of Breaking Tube, a local UP news portal dated 06 May 2021. The still of the viral video can be seen in the thumbnail of the report. The title of the report reads in Hindi, "चंदौली: चोरी के आरोप में चौकी प्रभारी और कांस्टेबल ने बच्चों को बेरहमी से पीटा, Video देख SP ने दोनों को किया निलंबित." [English Translation: Chandauli: Outpost in-charge and constable brutally beat up children on theft charges. SP suspended both after watching THE video]. According to the report, the viral incident occurred in the Chandauli district of Uttar Pradesh, where police brutally thrashed three minors on theft charges.

We then did a keyword search and found the still of the viral video in the report of Amar Ujala dated 02 May 2021. According to the report, Abhay Ram, a resident of Mathela village of Balua police station area, has a mobile shop at Sarai Pulia. Three minor boys from the village entered the shop during the curfew and tried to steal by breaking the door. However, they were caught by the shop owner and handed over to the police. Kailavar outpost in-charge Shivanand Verma reached the spot along with the policemen. The outpost in charge thrashed the three boys with a cane. During this, someone present at the spot made this video which went viral on social media. After the video went viral, Chandauli Superintendent of Police Amit Kumar suspended the outpost in-charge Shivanand Verma and constable Dilip Kumar.

We also found this video in a video report of The Times of India. Here one can see similar footage as seen in the viral video.

On searching more, we found a tweet of Chandauli Police in which they refuted the viral claim. While replying to a user, they wrote a caption which reads in English, "The case is more than a year old in which departmental action has been taken by suspending both the policemen at the time due to the inhuman treatment done to the child. Please refrain from circulating anything without full facts and clear information".

Our investigation shows that the viral video is from Chandauli, Uttar Pradesh, where two policemen brutally thrashed three minors over allegations of theft. Later, two cops were suspended due to inhumane treatment done to the minors. It has nothing to do with Pakistan or slogan raising, as the caption of the viral video claims. Hence, the viral claim is false.
