A video shows a Hindu man was beaten by Muslim men in Jodhpur, Rajasthan.

A group of men assaults a 27-year-old man over a monetary dispute in Haryana's Yamunanagar district. There is no proof of a communal motive.

In the backdrop of communal riots in India, social media has been flooded with fake and misleading videos. One such video was shared on Twitter, stating that "a Hindu man was beaten by Muslim men in Jodhpur, Rajasthan." The video depicts a group of men attacking a man with iron rods and sharp-edged weapons in Jodhpur. However, it is misleading because the video from Sultanpur village of Yamunanagar district, Haryana, was falsely attributed to Jodhpur, Rajasthan. According to The Times of India, Kamaljit Singh was injured after 10 men severely assaulted him with iron rods and sharp-edged weapons in Sultanpur village of Yamunanagar district, Haryana. He suffered severe injuries to his face, arms, and legs and is receiving treatment at the public hospital in Yamunanagar district. Kamaljit told police that the accused attacked him regarding a monetary dispute on May 1 at the dairy near his village. Sadhaura police station house officer (SHO) inspector Satish Kumar said, "We have registered a case against an identified accused, and raids are being conducted by our teams to apprehend the accused." The case was registered under the Indian Penal Code (IPC) Sections 148, 149, 323, 324, 307, 452, and 506, The Times of India reports. Yamunanagar police, on May 3, tweeted that after the video went viral, two people, Ricky, a Kanipala resident, and Ishaq, a Khandra resident, were arrested in connection with the attack on Kamal, a Sultanpur village resident. On Twitter, Jodhpur police confirmed that the viral video was fake and not from Jodhpur and warned that strict legal action would be taken against any person found guilty of spreading posts or messages on the internet or social media that violate social harmony. The incident occurred in Sultanpur village of Yamunanagar district, Haryana, and had no communal motives. Hence we mark this claim as misleading.
