The caption shared with the video claims that the incident took place in Hyderabad and 5 people have been arrested. In the video, one could also hear people chanting slogans against Bhim Rao and Bhim Sena.
A Twitter user shared a shorter version of the video with a caption, "Peace-loving people in Hyderabad beat up the photo of Baba Saheb Ambedkar "Five peacekeepers were arrested and lodged."
The same video is also getting viral on Facebook as well with a caption suggesting that people from the Muslim community in Hyderabad did this act.
