New Delhi (Vishvas News). A 30-second video is going viral on social media where a few people can be seen trying to pull out a girl from an open drain on a flooded road. Social media users are claiming that this incident happened in Prayagraj in Uttar Pradesh. Some social media users are also spreading it in the name of Bhilwara in Rajasthan.
Vishvas News in its investigation found that the viral video is from Delhi. It has nothing to do with Rajasthan or Uttar Pradesh.

Sharing the video, Facebook user ‘Anurag Singh Yadav’ wrote, “This is not a river, it is a road in Prayagraj district of Uttar Pradesh.”
Facebook user Manoj Kumar Soni Patrkaar (archive link) has posted this video as Bhilwara’s.
We took the help of InVid tool to investigate the viral claim. On searching the keyframes on Google reverse image, we found a tweet from a Twitter account named Sumit Agarwal. Posting this on 27 August 2022, the user wrote that it is from Begumpur in Delhi.
The Information and Public Relations Department of Rajasthan also tweeted on 26 August calling this video not from Rajasthan but from Delhi.
In the video, we saw the hoarding of ‘Multispecialty Hospital’ and ‘Fashion World’. We found this location when we searched Fashion World Begumpur Delhi on Google Maps. This can be seen in Google’s Street View. There is Hira’s Multi Specialty Hospital nearby, part of which can be seen in the viral video.
