1-year-old video from Nawada city of Bihar

In the investigation, we found that the video is not from Uttarpradesh but of Kalali Road in Nawada city of Bihar and is from 2018.

UPPOLICE FACT CHECK revealed the truth of the video by putting out a tweet through its verified handle. Quoting the tweet of the user, UP Police Fact Check team wrote,' The incident shown in the above video is of the year 2018 which is related to Nawada, Bihar. '

Along with this, they also shared the news report by News18, in which the exact same video was used. According to this news report, "The fault of the e-rickshaw was that he turned his vehicle in the wrong direction." However, when he realized this, he immediately withdrew the e-rickshaw but during this time one wheel of the vehicle hit the traffic cop's leg. At this point, the traffic policeman thrashed the Rickshaw driver mercilessly. After the video went viral on social media, SP Hari Prasath S, after checking the video, suspended the accused cop Vishwajit.

Conclusion, the video which is being shared with the claim that the e-rickshaw driver was brutally beaten up by the UP Police for asking rickshaw fare from the police, is false. The viral video is of 2018 from the Nawada city of Bihar.
