Truck Heading From Tamilnadu To Bahraich Catches Fire In Unnao, Falsely Linked To Ram Mandir Consecration: Fact-Check

According to a video that has gone viral, a truck carrying firecrackers for the consecration of the Ram Mandir in Ayodhya caught fire while going on its way in Unnao.

Several accounts on twitter, including Ramnath Goswami (“@RamnathGos49710“) tweeted “big news *There will be fireworks at the time of consecration of Ram temple.. For that, a truck full of firecrackers was going to Ayodhya. A fire broke out near Unnao, the entire truck was destroyed.* *People felt that suddenly they had reached Pakistan border. Even in the fog, fireworks were seen far and wide!!* ” on Jan 17, 2024.

Many other accounts, including Mamta Tripathi (“@MamtaTripathi80“), @AfiaAnjums, @news_am2456022 also made the same claim that a truck carrying fireworks for Lord Shri Ram’s Prana Pratistha programme, which was scheduled to take place in Ayodhya, Uttar Pradesh, was travelling from Tamil Nadu to Ayodhya when it unexpectedly caught fire in Unna. The archive can be read from above.

What is the Actual Truth About this Incident? : Fact

The truth is that this truck, which was travelling from Tamil Nadu to Bahraich with firecrackers for a store as well as children’s, actor’s, and religious posters, caught fire near the village of Khargikheda, which is located under the Purva police station. It is unrelated to the consecration of the Ayodhya Ram Mandir.

The official account of UNNAO POLICE (“@unnaopolice“) tweeted “In reference to the incident of fire in a truck near village Khargikheda under police station Purva area @Uppolice” on Jan 17, 2024.

Again, @unnaopolice further tweeted “The fire has been completely extinguished by the police and fire brigade and there has been no loss of life. Traffic is running smoothly. The said truck was going from Tamil Nadu to Bahraich, which was loaded with fireworks, children’s posters, film artists and religious posters for shop supplies.” on Jan 17, 2024.

D-Intent’s Fact-Checking Results:


Propagandists are circulating videos with false claims to set their propaganda over the Ram Mandir consecration ceremony.


Fact : The truck carrying firecrackers for a shop, as well as children’s, actor’s, and religious posters, caught fire near Village Khargikheda in the Purva police station area. This has nothing to do with the consecration of the Ayodhya Ram Mandir.
