Fact Check: Video Of Police Chase In Brazil Falsely Shared As That From Srinagar

Date:

A video showing a dramatic incident involving the police apprehending a bike rider is widely shared on social media. The video is shared on Facebook claiming that this incident happened in Srinagar where an army commando caught the terrorist.

The caption reads: यह देखिए श्रीनगर में सेना के कमांडो ने किस तरह से आतंकी को पकड़ा आतंकी अपने जैकेट में छुपे हथियार को निकालने की कोशिश में था कमांडो ने दौड़कर उसके सीने पर ऐसा लात मारा कि वह नीचे औंधे मुंह धड़ाम से गिरा आप जवान की स्फूर्ति देखिये…” (English translation: See how the army commando caught the terrorist in Srinagar. The terrorist was trying to take out the weapon hidden in his jacket. The commando ran and kicked him on the chest so much that he fell face down with a thud. See the courage of the soldier. .)

FACT CHECK 

NewsMobile fact-checked the above claim, and found it to be FALSE.

Performing a Reverse Image Search, our team spotted a news report, dated August 2, 2021, carrying visuals similar to the viral post, stating that “a military policeman kicked a 17-year-old boy during an approach in Pérola, Paraná in Brazil”. 

The same video had been uploaded on Daily Motion two years before with a caption: “After a police chase, teenager collides motorcycle against PM vehicle and falls on the ground, and detained”. 

According to reports, the bike rider involved in the incident was accused of multiple violations, including driving without a valid licence, failing to comply with the police’s instructions to stop, endangering the lives of pedestrians, and riding in the opposite direction of traffic.

Thus, it is evident from the above information that a video showing a dramatic police chase is from Brazil, and not Srinagar, India.
