This was brought to our notice when a user tagged us in the same video uploaded by Sai Deepak J who captioned it with a message "This seems like West Bengal. How is this being permitted? What on earth was the police doing?"

Our Investigation

When searched for it, we found that the same video was viral in 2017 as well and was debunked by Kolkata Police when SMHoaxslayer requested for it. According to the police, the man was manhandled by family members of the girl whom he allegedly molested.

Kolkata Police had tweeted that an FIR was filed against the priest and a counter FIR was registered against those who assaulted him on August 31st 2017.

Another video of the incident is available on Youtube which claims that the man was caught while trying to molest a girl.

Fact

The claim that a Brahmin was beaten in front of daughter by Muslim mob is false. The man in the video was manhandled by family members of the girl whom he allegedly molested.
