Explanation

The one-minute, fifty-second video that is posted depicts a street from above. Here, we watch a man being assaulted by a group of individuals during the day. He gets severely stabbed by some men while he lies in a pool of blood on the road. We also see several repeatedly stabbing his lifeless body. The video finishes there as soon as some people start to approach and stare at the unresponsive body.

This post is shared with a claim stating, “Brahmapuri Seelampur Delhi in broad daylight this is just the beginning Hindus see what happens to you in the future and vote for two anti-national parties Be careful, now is the chance.” You can view similar claim posts here and here.

What’s the truth?

We began our study using pertinent keywords and a basic reverse image search on Google. This brought up a few reports from May 6, 2024.

The Free Press Journal published an article, with the title, “Horrific VIDEO: Gangster Brutally Stabbed To Death Over Inter-Gang Rivalry In Delhi’s Jafrabad” which also carried the screengrabs from the viral video.

As per the article, “Police said that Nazeer aka Nanhe was on his way back home on a scooter when the attackers stopped him in a lane. He was then stabbed in his neck and fell to the ground. This is when the assailants surrounded him and attacked him repeatedly. One assailant seen in the video stabs him multiple times on his body. Another one stabs the victim in the neck.”

We took this as a hint, searched further, and got another report from the Deccan Herald. The report states that the unidentified attackers repeatedly stabbed Nazir, a resident of the Jafrabad neighborhood, in his forehead, neck, and abdomen.

“He was traveling on his scooter when some people attacked him with knives near Mangla Hospital street in Jafrabad at around 6:45 pm,” Deputy Commissioner of Police (northeast) Joy Tirkey said.

The Times Of India also covered the incident in an article dated May 7, 2024, captioned “Witness in murder case stabbed to death, 4 held.”
The article says, that Nazir, a resident of Chauhan Bangar in northeast Delhi, saw his brother Amir killed, and authorities are now looking into whether or not he was slain to keep him from testifying in court. The gang of Almas alias Allu, who is connected to gangster Chhenu Pehelwan in northeast Delhi, is accused of killing Amir. The victim Nazeer’s home was barely 250 meters from the scene of the tragedy.

The details mentioned above make it very clear that there is no communal connection to this horrific killing as per the widespread claim.

Conclusion:

We therefore conclude that the widely circulated rumor that Hindus are being killed in broad daylight in Brahmapuri Seelampur, Delhi, is false and misleading. The attackers and the victim are actually members of the same Muslim community.
