A social media post with a 16-second video claiming that it was the arrest of a terrorist in Srinagar, Jammu Kashmir by the security guards is being circulated widely.

What is the Truth?

When we reverse searched the keyframes of the viral video, we found an article dated 2nd August 2021 with the same video and pictures on ‘Obemdito’ website.

It was mentioned in the said article that after being warned by cops for overspeeding the man was chased and arrested.

A YouTube channel named ‘RIC More’ on 2nd August has posted a different angle video of the same incident mentioning that the person was arrested after the cops chased and crashed their vehicle into his motorcycle.

When we searched for an arrest of a terrorist in Srinagar, India Today’s 14th August article says about the arrest of terrorist Hizbul Mujahideen in Jammu and Kashmir’s Kishtwar.

Conclusion

The video that claims the arrest of a terrorist in Srinagar is not true. The video belongs to Brazil and not in Srinagar.
