A picture of Kapil Mishra's supporter falsely shared as Jaffrabad shooter

  • Share


The man standing with Kapil Mishra is not the same as Jaffrabad shooter Shahrukh. The viral claim on social media and Whatsapp is false.

On 25th Feb, Acharya Pramod tweeted a picture of Jaffrabad shooter along with a supporter of former AAP MLA and BJP leader Kapil Mishra to claim that both are same. Along with the picture, he wrote, "This is the same leader who is appealing for peace while sitting in a TV studio".

Another infographic containing the picture of Jaffrabad shooter and Kapil Mishra's supporter is going viral on Whatsapp with a message, "A Pro CSS Goon was seen firing on Anti CAA protesters in Delhi. This happened only after Kapil Mishra's inflammatory speech. From Maujpur to Jaffrabad, goons are attacking anti-CAA protesters with weapons and burning public properties".

Fact Check

Kapil Mishra had given the police a 3-day ultimatum to clear anti-Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) protesters in northeast Delhi's Jaffrabad and Chandbagh areas.

Here is the video tweeted by Kapil Mishra which has been taken down by Twitter.

In the video, the face of the man whose picture is viral can be clearly seen behind Kapil Mishra towards his right. We compared the facial structure of the man with Jaffrabad shooter. As evident, there are major dissimilarities in the facial structure and hairstyles.

In our previous article, we have already established that the shooter was from the anti-CAA group. As per a report by ANI, the shooter was identified as Shahrukh.

The man standing with Kapil Mishra is not the same as Jaffrabad shooter Shahrukh. The viral claim on social media and Whatsapp is false.
