Fact Check: Here’s the truth behind the video of UP Police dancing after Vikas Dubey’s encounter

A video of police personnel dancing is doing the rounds on social media with a claim the Uttar Pradesh Police is celebrating the encounter of gangster Vikas Dubey.

” विकास दूबे एनकाउंटर के बाद यूपी पुलिस ! 😂👏😜👏” the caption read. 

(Translation: UP Police after Vikas Dubey’s encounter!)

FACT CHECK 

NewsMobile fact-checked the video and found the claim to be false.

When we extracted the keyframes of the video and put them through Reverse Image Search, we found a similar video of YouTube, dated February 5, 2019.

In another video of the dance, from the same location, the same police personal are also visible.

We found one more video, shot in the same location, that was posted on Facebook in April 2019.

In one of the shots, DP (Delhi Police) can be seen written on the uniform.

Hence, from the above information, we can conclude that the video is not of UP Police and it is also established that the video is at least one year old.

Hence, the claim attached to the post is false.
