A video of a strange figure walking on a highway at night is going viral all over media and social media claiming that the video was taken at Jharkhand’s Hazaribag.

In our investigation, we found that the video which is going viral is misleading as people there is no Alien or Ghost in this video and this video was not recorded in Hazaribag.
Local channel Jan Doot News interviewed the two men who recorded the viral video. The men said that the video was filmed when they were returning from Chakradharpur to Seraikela after attending a funeral of a friend’s mother via Kharsawan road. The man thought that the strange figure was a Ghost and shouted 'Chudail hai, ladki hai, record kar, record kar!'. When a few others reached the spot, we asked if they too saw the woman. She was not a ghost and this was also confirmed by other passers-by, figure in the video was a naked woman walking on the highway. He also told that the original video is about 1:30 minutes long and the viral clip runs for 30 seconds. You can watch the full interview here.
In conclusion, the video which is being circulated all over social media is fake there is no alien or ghost, it was a woman walking naked on the highway.
