Old video from Gujarat is claimed to be from Tamil Nadu.
Following several false claims that Biharis are under attack in Tamil Nadu, another video from Gujarat is claimed to be from Tamil Nadu.
Recently, BJP Bihar indulged in a misinformation spree with which they claimed that Bihari migrant workers are being targeted in Tamil Nadu.

The two groups had demarcated limits amongst themselves where they have the right to catch wild boars. Since this was allegedly trespassed by one group, the dispute arose. It soon escalated and resulted in a confrontation with swords and ramming cars into other group’s cars.
This incident happened in July 2022. Some of the news reports relating the incident can be seen here, here, here and here.
