So, there are a lot of doubts about the location of the incident.
The above claim is FALSE.
When searched, we found that this incident took place in Jhansi, Uttar Pradesh, and NOT in Delhi. When the Jhansi Police got a tip-off, they launched an investigation.
A longer version of the video shows the policemen moving the equipment and demonstrating that it is over greased. And when just touched, it starts to move vigorously for many seconds.
“I was accompanied by a few people and there were some bystanders too. Someone has mischievously edited and clipped the starting portion and made it viral to show that we (police) are also shocked at the ‘fitness freak ghost,’” said the officials.
Jhansi police tweeted a video demonstrating the equipment which started moving just by touch.

Jhansi police also issued a clarification that there is NO paranormal activity in the park and urged people NOT to spread rumors.
“Some mischievous person made a video of moving swing & shared on #social media. Miscreants will b hosted in a ‘haunted’ lockup soon #NoHostForGhost,” tweeted Rahul Srivastav, Additional SP of Jhansi Police.
