The video was recorded before the declaration of the Bihar Assembly Election results on 10 November 2020, it can be concluded that the posted video is not related to any protest against the election results.
After India's governing Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and its allies won a close race in the key state of Bihar, a video has emerged on social media platforms purportedly showing a large number of people protesting on streets claiming that in Bihar, people have demanded recounting of votes and also protested against CM Nitish Kumar, PM Modi, and the Election Commission of India (ECI). A Facebook user named Sandhaya Yaduvanshi shared the video with a caption in Hindi that can be roughly translated to, "Bihar's people are raising slogans against CM Nitish Kumar, PM Modi, and Election Commission and demanding recounting of votes."
This video has been reshared over 1600 times at the time of writing this article.
This video is being widely shared on Facebook with the same caption in Hindi.
In our investigation, we found this claim to be false. The video is doing rounds on social media since October 29 and the Bihar Assembly elections were announced on November 10, hence, the video is not related to Bihar polls.
With the help of reverse image search using the keyframes of the video, we found this video uploaded on a YouTube channel on October 29 with the title saying "Munger killings protest against police."
The viral video was also shared on a Facebook page stating that the video shows a protest against the recent killing in the city allegedly due to police firing during the Durga idol immersion after Dusshera this year.
However, we ever not able to the exact location of the video but, as the video was recorded before the declaration of the Bihar Assembly Election results on 10 November 2020, it can be concluded that the posted video is not related to any protest against the election results.
