Against the backdrop of communal violence reported in Delhi’s Jahangirpuri area during the recently held Hanuman Jayanti procession, an image is being shared on social media depicting a Muslim mob pelting stones at a police officer.

The image was tweeted by the media head and spokesperson for BJP Delhi, Naveen Kumar Jindal. He later deleted the post.

It was also shared by other Twitter users.

The same image was tweeted by The Statesman from its official Twitter handle while reporting on the Jahangirpuri violence.

Fact-check

We performed a reverse image search on Yandex and found a report by the Times of India, stating that the image captures an instance of a violent clash with the police, during the anti-CAA protests that took place in the Shah-e-Alam area of Ahmedabad in December 2019.

We performed a keyword search in Hindi on Youtube and found a video report by Aaj Tak’s Gujarati channel where the specific instance has been recorded, starting at 0:41/3:18.

The image is, therefore, two years old and unrelated to the recent violence in Delhi.
