FACT CHECK:

The claim is false.

This video was posted by Indian social media influencer and motivational speaker Nikita Sharma, on Instagram on June 17. "Always the BEST times dancing with my main man! I love how spontaneous and fun he is and such a sport when it comes to making videos with me. I love youuuuu, Pa (sic)," reads the caption.

The caption suggests that the man in the video is her father. She posted a similar video of them dancing on 7 July too.


The man in the video is her father, Sandeep Kumar Sharma, who is former Indian defence personnel, reported Deccan Chronicle.

Sandeep Sharma has also posted a few images of the father-daughter duo on his Instagram profile.

Clearly, a video of a social media influencer dancing with her father was falsely shared as a Pakistani anti-corruption officer partying with a dancer.

Thus, the claim is false.
