Fact Check: Video of Paratwada mock drill shared with false claims

Hyderabad: A video of cops and armed security men surrounding a blue bus is viral on social media.

In the video, it seems as if an encounter is going on between the security forces and miscreants. Some jawans are seen going inside the bus. Two people with their hands tied are being made to sit on their knees.

It is further being claimed that Maharashtra Police arrested two terrorists from a bus at Amravati in Maharashtra.


Fact Check

The claim is False.

NewsMeter performed a Google Reverse Image Search of a screengrab from the viral video which led us to a similar video uploaded on the YouTube channel 'GMS FAST'. The description of the video reads, "Quick Response Team mock drill Paratwada."


Taking a cue from this, the fact check team performed a keyword search which led us to another YouTube channel `Global Facilities' that had also shared the video about the mock drill at Paratwada bus station.


The team lastly found a video on another YouTube channel `Gavran 90'. According to the report, police conducted a mock drill at the bus stand of Paratwada city of Amravati on October 14 in view of the upcoming festivals.


It is therefore evident that the viral claim is False.
