Fact Check: Old video of man killed in land dispute shared as video of Jatan Saha's death during Bangladesh violence

  • Share


It is true that Jatan Saha, a resident of Cumilla's Titas Upazila in Bangladesh, was killed by a mob in Noakhali on 15 October. But this is an old video which is being shared with a false claim that it shows Jatan Saha's murder. 

For the past few days, Hindus and temples are being attacked in Bangladesh in which many people have lost their lives. A disturbing video is going viral on social media regarding this violence. A 32-second graphic video shows a man being hacked to death by two men has been shared on social media with a claim that it shows the recent killing of one Jatin Saha by rioters in Bangladesh.

A Twitter user name Devdutta Maji shares a video with the caption "Killing video of Jatin Saha. He was from Comilla. He was killed in Noakhali while visiting on the eve of Durga Puja. Hindus are not living in Bangladesh, they are dying every moment."

Another Twitter user name Vinod Sharma shared a video with the caption "Video of the killing of #JatinSaha in Bangladesh. How did Hindus feel seeing this? This is our future. These Bangladeshis are living illegally in this country, who are helped by the traitors here because their purpose is to do all this with the Hindus of India, only then protested against CAA and NRC here."

Fact Check

In our investigation, we found that the viral video is misleading. The video is not related to the recent incident of the killing of Jatan Saha. This video is from May 2021 and Dhaka, the capital of Bangladesh.

After doing a reverse image search on Google using the keyframes of the video, we found that the same video was uploaded on the website name "Alivegore". We also found the information for the viral video in a Bangladeshi news portal "Daily Bangladesh". According to this news published on 20 May 2021, this incident took place in the Pallabi area of ​​Dhaka in which some people killed a person named Sahinuddin due to a land dispute. In this case of murder, the police had arrested a former Bangladesh MP MA Awal, and some others. Shaheenuddin was murdered in front of his child.

At that time, the viral video was also used in a report by Channel 24 on May 19, 2021.

However, it is true that Jatan Kumar Saha was killed on October 15, 2021, when Hindu temples in Noakhali's Begumganj Upazila were attacked. Jatan's family members said that on October 15, hundreds of people attacked the ISKCON temple. At that time, Jatan was at the ISKCON temple gate and came under attack. The attackers broke his leg, Jatan then went home and iced his broken leg to reduce pain but he went out again to observe the situation. The attackers spotted him and began beating him severely after which he died.

In conclusion, it is clear that though a man named Jatan Saha has actually been killed in Bangladesh violence, this video has nothing to do with it. The video is from May 2021 when a person named Sahinuddin was killed by some people in Dhaka, the capital of Bangladesh, over a land dispute.
