Fact Check: Video Of A Turkish Tractor Falsely Linked To Ongoing Farmers’ Protest In Delhi

Date:

A video showing a tractor modified with metal grills around it is being widely circulated on social media. Many users say that one of the tractors has been used by the protesting farmers in Delhi. It is also claimed that the Khalistanis are supporting these farmers and calling out the Congress for being the main mastermind behind the protest.

A Facebook user posted the viral post with the following caption: 

Dear Police | You will have to deal with this kinds of tractors this time during #FarmersProtest2024 

Does this look like a preparation for kisan aandolan …?  It is a brazen preparedness for War.  And , who is paying for all this expensive breastwork / fortification/parapet  ..???  

It is obvious that Khalistanis are in action again not farmers…!

At the same time #RahulGandhi meeting key farmer leaders & farmers from across India are gathering at Delhi – #JaiRamRamesh revealed (by mistake) that #Congress is behind this so-called #FarmersProtest.

FACT CHECK

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

Running a Reverse Image Search of the video keyframes, our team identified an Instagram post on the official handle of Ortakoy Haberim — a Turkish media house, dated February 1, 2024. The video matches with the viral clip informing that it is a Duplex Cabin Tractor. 

Checking further, we identified the official website of Hattat Traktör. The tractors on the website match with the viral clip except for the added rod frame at the front. And the company is based out of Turkey.

We also came across another Instagram post on an unverified account where the person has taken ownership of the video. Here, the keyframes match exactly with the viral clip and we can see the modified tractor. This confirms that the video cannot be linked to the ongoing protests in Delhi.

Therefore, we can conclusively say that the viral post, claiming to show a modified tractor from the ongoing protests in Delhi, is false.
