NewsMobile fact-checked the above video and found the claim attached to it to be FAKE.
Firstly the video is NOT from Assam, but it is from Jharkhand’s Khunti when police were holding a mock drill.

Towards the end of the video, an announcement can be heard in which cops are informing about the mock drill.
Hence, the above information proves that the video is not from Assam as claimed above.
