A video showing a wedding procession taken out in a bulldozer is widely shared on social media claiming that this incident happened in Uttar Pradesh.
The video is shared on Facebook with a caption: “यूपी में का बा… अब बारात में भी बुलडोजर हो बा” (English translation: What’s in UP. Now the wedding party is also bulldozed)
Here’s the link to the above post.
NewsMobile fact-checked the above claim, and found it to be MISLEADING.
Performing a Reverse Image Search, we identified the official YouTube handle of ABP Ganga carrying the same viral video. According to the video description, the incident happened in Gujarat.
A piece of video news about this incident was uploaded on Republic India‘s YouTube channel on February 3, 2023. According to this, this case is of the Navsari district of Gujarat.
According to ANI News, “In Kaliyari village of Navsari district of Gujarat, instead of a mare, the groom arrived on a JCB to pick up his bride. Groom’s name is Keyur Patel. Where the groom usually comes in a wedding procession in a luxury car or other means, in such a situation, the arrival of this groom in a JCB to get married became a centre of attraction for the people.”
Thus, it is evident from the above information that the viral video is from Gujarat and not Uttar Pradesh.
