On Fact-Checking the viral video, we found that the CCTV footage was NOT from the Pulwama attack.
When NewsMobile put the video frame through Reverse Image Search, we found that originally the video was posted on March 5, 2008. As per the time counter on the video, it shows that the video was shot on 9/2/2007 (September 2, 2007) 3:54:52 PM.
On digging further we found that the video was from Baghdad where a ‘vehicle-borne improvised explosive device’ (VBIED) was detonated outside Camp Taji.
Hence, the video is not from the Pulwama attack.
