Fact Check: Video Of Wall Collapse In UP Viral With False Narrative

Date:

A video — showing some injured people, and claiming that a wall collapsed in Nagpur due to the vibrations of loud music played by the DJ at an event — is being widely circulated on social media. Many users have cautioned people about the effects of loud DJs at events. 

A Facebook user posted the viral post with the following caption: DJ = SOUND BOMB *नागपुर बहुत ऊंची आवाज में DJ बजाने से पैदा हुए “कंपन्न” (Vibrations) के कारण से दीवार गिरी और  कार्यक्रम में सम्मिलित ही कई लोग घायल हो गए , अतः कार्यक्रम में DJ बजाना बंद करे…

(English: DJ = SOUND BOMB *Nagpur Due to “Vibrations” born from playing a very loud DJ, the wall fell and many people were injured in the programme, so stop playing DJ in the programme…)

FACT CHECK

NewsMobile fact-checked the viral post, and found it to be fake.

Running a Reverse Image Search of the video keyframes, the NM team identified a tweet on an unverified profile, dated December 17, 2023. Here, the caption makes the same claim as the viral post, but the location is in Uttar Pradesh, not Nagpur.

Searching further, our team traced a NDTV news report, dated December 8, 2023. The surroundings in the report match somewhat with the viral clip, describing that the incident happened in Mau district of UP.

We also came across a YouTube video, titled: Mau: Ghosi में गिरी दीवार, शादी में जा रही 6 महिलाओं की मौत, CM Yogi ने जताया दुख | Breaking News, published on the official channel of NDTV. The news bulletin explains the entire incident in detail, clarifying that the accident happened in UP, not Nagpur. 

As per the report, some women from the village were taking part in a marriage ritual near an old wall which collapsed and fell on them. Therefore, we can conclusively say that the claim by the viral post is MISLEADING.
