A video of a man being brutally beaten up by a mob is doing rounds on social media with a claim that the man being assaulted is BJP MLA Nand Kishore Gurjar and he was beaten up by farmers at the Ghazipur border.
“एक और #भाजपा विधायक #नंदकिशोर गुर्जर को गाजीपुर बार्डर पर किसानों ने #नंगा करके #कुटा कुटाई चालू है,” the Facebook post read.
(Translation: Another BJP MLA Nand Kishore Gurjar was stripped naked and beaten by farmers at the Ghazipur border.)

NewsMobile fact-checked the post and found the claim to be false.
After watching the video we realised that the video is OLD and has been debunked by NewsMobile on two separate occasions in the past.
Once it was shared with a false link to Health Minister Dr Harsh Vardhan and on a different occasion the same video was shared with a claim that a Congress leader from Madhya Pradesh was assaulted by a mob.
The fact checks can be seen here and here.
