Meanwhile, a viral video is purported to be from Mahua Moitra’s expulsion from Lok Sabha, New Delhi. In the video, we can see her being dragged by Delhi police. Similar claims can be seen here, here and here 

What is the truth?

We ran a reverse image search using the keyframes of the video and found that this incident happened while she was protesting in Krishi Bhawan, Delhi over the issue of the release of the Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Act (MGNREGA) Fund in West Bengal. She was detained and dragged by Delhi police on 03, October 2023, reported Mojo Story YouTube Channel.

Even the former MP Mahua Moitra tweeted about this incident. It was also reported by many media outlets such as The Free Press Journal, TOI, India Today, Hindustan Times and News18.

So according to the above reports, we can ascertain that the video is 2 months old and it has been falsely shared as Mahua Moitra’s recent expulsion from Lok Sabha.

Conclusion

A 2-month-old video of Mahua Moitra being dragged by police during a protest over the MGNREGA fund release is falsely linked with her recent Lok Sabha expulsion.
