A video of a fire is being widely shared on social media with a claim that a CNG Petrol pump in Delhi’s Rohini area has caught fire.
The video is shared with a caption that reads, “दिल्ली के रोहिणी सेक्टर 11 में CNG पंप में भीषण आग लगी..” (English translation, “CNG pump caught fire in Rohini Sector 11 of Delhi.”)
NewsMobile did a fact-check and found the claim to be misleading.
On doing a Google Reverse Image Search, we found that the same video was uploaded by a hyperlocal news channel Punch News on May 29, 2022. The video was uploaded with a description that read, “दिल्ली के रोहिणी स्थित एक शादी पंडाल में लगी आग का वीडियो भ्रामक दावे के साथ हुआ वायरल” (English translation: “A viral video of fire breakout in a marriage tent in Rohini is being shared with a misleading claim.”)
We found the same video was also uploaded by another YouTube channel, Deshhit News, on March 28, 2022.
A screenshot of the viral video was also uploaded by Delhi Police with a caption that read, “A video being spread on social media, of fire at a CNG pump in Rohini, is factually incorrect. Incident of fire took place on 24th Mar at a pandal wherein no casualties were reported. #DelhiPolice acted promptly to help contain the situation.”
Hence, the viral video shows a fire accident at a marriage tent in Delhi and not at a CNG petrol pump.
