What is the truth?

When searching to know about the viral video, we found an article from TOI. The Times of India reported that school girls and teacher from Dharam Singh Inter college, Bagpat, Uttar Pradesh thrashed a eve teaser. In the 26 second video, the same visuals of a group of girls can be seen with covered faces hitting a man with sticks and running behind him to beat him. This incident was reported five years ago.

According to TOI, the girl complained many times to school authorities but no action was taken by the school. So they planned to teach him a lesson. The accused is identified as Kapil Chauhan, as per The Quint article.

The Baghpat Police’s X account in December 2018 posted that the accused had been arrested. No communal angle is found in the incident.

Conclusion

The viral video is of female students chasing an eve-teaser to beat him. This video is 5 years old and is shared now with false communal spin.
