Fact Check

The claim is False.

NewsMeter performed a Google Reverse Image Search which led the team to a video uploaded on the YouTube channel 'Mps Entertainment' that was uploaded on July 18, 2017.

The description of the video read, "Stone pelters are being taught a lesson in Kashmir." The visuals of the viral video can be seen from 2:07 minutes.

The team found that the video was uploaded on another YouTube channel 'Baba Creative' on July 19, 2017. It is a longer version of the viral video. In the video, officials are seen questioning the main. He pleads that he had put up the video by mistake and starts apologizing.

Meanwhile, this video was also uploaded on another YouTube channel 'Islah video3' on June 30, 2017.

It is therefore evident that the viral claim is False. The video dates back to 2017 and has nothing to do with the Indo-Pak match.
