Fact Check: Old Video From Udaipur Viral With False Claim Of Firing In A Jaipur Tunnel

A video of people fighting inside a tunnel is doing rounds on social media. It is being claimed that this was a firing incident at Transport Nagar Tunnel in Jaipur, Rajasthan.

A Facebook user shared the video with the text, “जयपुर की ट्रांसपोर्ट नगर सुरंग में हुई फायरिंग”

Here’s the link to the above video.


NewsMobile fact-checked the video and found that it is not from Jaipur and is being shared with a misleading claim.

We extracted keyframes of the video and put them through a Reverse Image Search. The search led us to the same video which was uploaded on a YouTube channel on March 6, 2022. The title of the video read, “Udaipur में Chirwa Tunnel के अंदर Boys का उत्पात, Police छानबीन में जुटी – Video Viral.”

Since the title mentioned Udaipur, we ran a relevant keyword search and found that the same video was also uploaded by News18 on March 5, 2022. “Udaipur | Chirwa Tunnel के अंदर युवकों का उत्पात, पुलिस छानबीन में जुटी | Viral Video,” the title read.

On investigating further, we also found that replying to the same video, the Udaipur Police clarified that no firing took place and the sound is of bikes being hit by a stick. The tweet read, “In the said case, there has been no incident of firing in Chirwa Tunnel. The video going viral in this regard is being investigated. It has been seen zoomed in, in which the sound of hitting the bike with sticks is believed to be firing, no such case has come to the notice of the police.”

Hence, from the above fact check, it is clear that an old video from Udaipur is being shared with a misleading claim.
