News CLAIM: Viral on Social Media claiming of violence broke out at Telinipara in West Bengal’s Hooghly district, a video is viral where two men are brutally beaten with heavy sticks. 

यह दिल दहला देने वाला वीडियो है इंसानियत को झकझोर कर देनी वाली घटना है। बंगाल में हिंदूओ के साथ मारपीट का वीडियो

TRUTH & Verification:  Milind Parande @MParandeVHP, tweeted the message asking the West Bengal government take appropriate action against the people thrashing the people/

प. बंगालकी सरकार मुस्लिम दुष्टताके विरूद्ध कारवाई करे। प. बंगाल में हूगलीके चंदननगरमें हजारों मुसलमानोंद्वारा हिंदुओंके घरोंको जलाया जा रहा है; हिन्दू महिलाएं सड़कोंपर आ गयी है..पुलिस प्रशासन मुसलमानोंके साथ है.मीडिया नहीं दिखा रही. हिंदूओंको स्वयंरक्षा के खड़ा होनाही होगा।

The government of Bengal should take action against Muslim wickedness. Thousands of Muslims are burning houses of Hindus in Chandannagar of Hooghly in Bengal; Hindu women have come on the streets .. Police administration is with Muslims. Media is not showing. Hindus will have to stand up for self-defense.

The video is not related to the recent violence in the Hoogly area. The above viral video us from Bangladesh and not West Bengal.

As per videos uploaded over a year ago, it looks like these people are some auto theft. The message on Facebook states, “Catch the thief for the crime of auto theft and beat him to death. What do you think”

Clashes had erupted in the Telinipara area of West Bengal, last week after members of a community were allegedly taunted and addressed as "corona" by a handful of people belonging to another group.

While speaking to media persons, Subrata Gangopadhyay, DCP Headquarters, Chandannagar, Hooghly on Telinipara incident said, “Situation in Telinipara now under control. We have arrested 125 people and recovered bombs in good numbers. An investigation is underway. A woman has also been arrested for posting the objectionable video on social media.” Earlier, clashes had erupted in Telinipara after members of a community were allegedly taunted as "corona" by some people belonging to another group.

VERDICT: False, Video is from Bangladesh and not India
