  • Share

Summary

The video of the shooting of an upcoming web series in Haryana, showing a scene where a cop shoots a couple, with a false claim that visuals show a real incident.

Recently, a video has surfaced on social media platforms showing a couple being shot dead by police personnel with a claim that the visuals show a real recent incident. 

 A Facebook user shared the video with a caption in Hindi that can be roughly translated to, "Action should be taken against this Policemen as soon as possible, otherwise they have become goons. Look, they are openly shot and killed. Policemen are to protect ourselves We have not made this message to kill you from the front. Forward this message forward so that it reaches everywhere."

Several other Twitter and Facebook users are sharing the same video asking people to forward it. 

The truth behind the claim 

In our investigation, we found this claim to be false. The video does not show a real incident but a shooting of an upcoming web series in Karnal, Haryana. 

Using reverse image search, we found this video shared on Twitter by a UP police officer, Rahul Srivastav, clarifying that the video is from a web series shooting in Karnal, Haryana. The caption reads, "#FactCheck- A video of a gory murder by a cop outside a restaurant is floating since today morning on #socialmedia, triggering queries & confusion. On verification, it’s attributed to a #webseries shot outside ‘Friends Cafe’ in Karnal Haryana as per the manager of the Cafe."

Karnal Breaking News, a local media channel reported the complete details of this video on their Facebook page. In the video, Karnal SP Ganga Ram Punia reiterated that a scene shot for the web series is falsely shared on social media as a true incident. Dainik Bhaskar also published an article and quoted Karnal SP Ganga Ram Punia’s clarification on this viral footage.

Hence, the video of the shooting of an upcoming web series in Haryana, showing a scene where a cop shoots a couple, with a false claim that visuals show a real incident.
