A video of a man in uniform talking about life and death saying “live and let live” is being shared on social media. The video of the man is shared with a photo of a dead body claiming the man in the video is dead.
Here is the link to the post above.
NewsMobile checked the posts and found the claim to be false.
Looking for similar posts on Facebook, we discovered that one of the videos had the @belakobaofficial watermark.
We did a search using this handle, which led us to a Facebook page called Belakoba. Scrolling through the page, we found a post dated August 23, 2022, which stated that the man in the video was alive and that the post was fake.
The caption of the post read, “Please don’t share fake news. Jeena Hai to Hans Ke Jiyo. This video has gone viral from our page. Suddenly today inhumane people are spreading this fake message hoping to get views on youtube and facebook We contacted sir…he is very healthy and doing well.
Another post (dated August 19) on the page led us to a YouTube video dated August 16, 2022, from which this clip is taken. In the video, the shooting man can be seen standing at a station called Gede. Gede is a village and border checkpoint in Nadia district, West Bengal state, India.
Also, in one of the frames, we can see the video banner reads ‘celebration of the 76th independence day…August 15 -2022’.
Additionally, the viral clip can be seen at 6:52 min from the original video.
Searching further, we also found another YouTube video, which premiered on August 24, 2022. According to the video, the man in the video is an OSB staff member. Virendra Singh and it was mentioned in the video that he is alive and well.
This proves that the man in the video is alive.
To take this a step further, we ran the other image (of the corpse) through a reverse image search and found that the same image was shared on Facebook on September 30, 2019.
The caption of the post read, “30.9.2020. » (Last trip, Shaheed Rajendra Singh Bhati, Jaisalmer 30.09.2019)
So, it is clear from the fact check above that the people are different and the post is fake.
