An old video from Varanasi showing visuals of flyover collapse is being falsely shared as an incident from Hyderabad.
A video has surfaced on social media platforms showing a bridge collapse with a claim that the video shows Balanagar-Jeedimetla flyover collapse in Hyderabad.
A Facebook user shared the video with the caption saying, "Balanagar Jeedimetla route. Under construction FLYOVER collapse."
The video is being widely shared on Facebook with the same caption.
In our investigation, we found this claim to be false. The video is old and shows the collapse of an under-construction flyover in Varanasi.
With the help of reverse image search, we found this video uploaded on YouTube on May 16, 2018. As per this report, the video shows the collapse of a part of a flyover that was under construction in Varanasi in 2018.
On further investigating, we also found a tweet by news agency ANI sharing the images of the accident.
Telangana state police also tweeted on February 24, 2021, in response to a tweet regarding the veracity of the video. Telangana Police had categorically stated that the video is related to an incident that happened in Varanasi a couple of years ago.
Moreover, we did not find any credible report about any such incident that took place near the Balanagar-Jeedimetla flyover.
In conclusion, an old video from Varanasi showing visuals of flyover collapse is being falsely shared as an incident from Hyderabad.
