TMC Goons Harassing An Innocent Family? No, Video From Bangladesh Shared With Communal Colour

Claim

In West Bengal, TMC supporters and an Islamist mob obstructed a Hindu family’s car, leading to harassment of the husband, wife, and child. The woman is seen pleading for the safety of her family amidst the chaotic scene. (Archive Link)

Many of such claims can be seen here, here and here.

Fact

A reverse image search of a keyframe of the viral video led us to the official YouTube channel of a Bangladeshi news outlet Rtv News, where the same video was uploaded on February 7, 2024. The video title, in Bangla, read, “3 people arrested in Mymensingh park attack incident”.

The video reported that a person named Shahjahan and his family went to visit Aranya Park located in Valuka, Mymensingh, Bangladesh, where they were allegedly attacked by the park authorities. The three accused were arrested by the police based on the complaint lodged by the family.

Other Bangladeshi news outlets like Ekattor TV, Jago News and Banglar Somoy also reported the incident at that time.

Thus it is clear that the video is not from West Bengal, but Bangladesh and all individuals involved, both complainants and accused, are reported to be from the same community.

Result: False
