A video showing a woman attacking a policeman is doing rounds on the internet. It is being claimed the video was shot in Bareilly where a woman from minority community attacked a policeman after being fined.
The caption of the post read: ‘बरेली सिविल लाईन्स न्यूज पुलिस द्वारा चालान काटने पर मुसलमानो ने उनकी पिटाई की,जो कानून को चुनौती है,यह विडियो बताता है कि आगे हिन्दुस्तान मे क्या क्या होगा,कौन देश चलाएगा,सबका भविष्य क्या होगा,सच यह है कि देश को बाहर से ज्यादा अन्दर से खतरा है’ (sic)
(Google translation: Bareilly Civil Lines News Policeman beaten by Muslims after they fined them, this is a challenge to the law, this video tells what will happen in India, who will run the country, what will be the future of everyone, the truth is that the country is from outside. There is danger from inside)

NewsMobile fact-checked the above claim and found it to be FAKE.
On putting the keyframes of the video through Reverse Image Search, we found a news report on YouTube by Dilli AajTak dated August 29, 2018. The report mentions that the incident took place in Ghaziabad.
We also found reports by India.com and Patrika published on August 28, 2018, which stated that the woman attacked the policeman after he slapped her brother during an altercation at an SBI bank in Loni, Ghaziabad, during Aadhaar card enrolment.
Ghaziabad Police took to Twitter to inform people that the said incident took place near an SBI bank in Loni. The tweet, posted in August 2018, explained that a case was registered against the culprit and two people have been arrested.

Noticing that the video is being revived on the internet with a misleading claim, Bareilly Police published a tweet on Thursday stating that the incident is two years old and took place in Ghaziabad.
उक्त वीडियो की जांच के क्रम में वीडियो लगभग दो वर्ष पुराना है, जो गाजियाबाद जिले से सम्बन्धित है । जिसमें गाजियाबाद पुलिस द्वारा कार्यवाही की जा चुकी है ।

In conclusion, the above information proves that the video is old and not from Bareilly.
