A shocking video of six men beating up a woman is widely being shared on the internet with a claim that the video shows how Muslims are oppressed in India.

The caption of the video read: “Muslims are oppressed in India and will continue to be oppressed if we do not protect them. It’s time to be unity. The Indian government will account! #ModiResignation”

FACT CHECK

NewsMobile fact-checked the above claim and found it to be fake.

We found a tweet in which Balrampur Police has posted a video on Twitter explaining the whole incident. In the tweet, Balrampur Superintendent of Police, Dev Ranjan Verma, clarifies that the incident took place in Rehra Bazar where a woman was beaten up severely by her husband, two brothers-in-law and her three nephews.

According to the video,  four accused have been arrested. Whereas the police personnel present at the spot are suspended because of inaction.
