Fake: This video of a copy being thrashed by locals is not from Hyderabad

While a policeman was thrashed, but the claim made in this video is false. Using some key words, we found that this incident was reported in October last year and was from Ahmedabad in Gujarat. Reports said that the policeman was drunk and following an argument with the locals, he was thrashed.

The Cyberabad police also took to Twitter and said Fake news. A video of some persons beating supposedly a police personnel at some unknown location is being circulated in social media as that of the Kondapur area of Cyberabad. It is clarified that no such incident has taken place anywhere in Cyberabad and this news is fake.

Further the Cyberabad police also said that legal action will be initiated against persons who share such false information with ulterior motives.

It is clear that the video of the policeman being beaten up by some men is from Gujarat and was shot last year in October.
