What is the Actual Truth About this Incident? : Fact

The truth is that these assertions are unfounded and fraudulent. The Rajasthan Police refuted any such incidence and said that those disseminating the video under false pretences are facing consequences. Some people stated that the victim’s name was Narayan Das. However, we discovered that Narayan Gurjar, a man who was not publicly hung, was recently beaten to death in Bhilwara, Rajasthan, as a result of mutual rivalry. Although the viral video is unconfirmed, it appears to be an event/drama performance because sounds from neighbouring loudspeakers can be heard.It is also said to originate from West Bengal, yet Kolkata police have not verified any such incidence. So, the claim that a Dalit man was punished for disrespecting and opposing an idol at a temple in Rajasthan is not true. We visited etv bharat, which published an article on this incident on April 23, 2024 with the headline “रंजिश के चलते दोस्ती बदली दुश्मनी में, दोस्त से की मारपीट, उपचार के दौरान हुई मौत – Murder Case In Bhilwara”. Due to mutual rivalry, the accused beat up a young man fiercely in Mandal area of ​​Bhilwara. The injured was admitted to the hospital. The injured died during treatment. It added “The injured youth was first admitted to Mandal Hospital and when his condition became serious, he was admitted to the District Hospital. The young man died during treatment here. The police have registered a case of murder in this case and formed four teams. Mandal police station in-charge Sanjay Gurjar said that 22-year-old Narayan Gurjar, resident of Koli Kheda village of Mandal police station area, was found injured on the roadside outside Kolikheda village on Tuesday. We reached the spot and first got the injured Narayan admitted to Mandal Hospital.”

@PoliceRajasthan tweeted “Some anti-social elements on various social media handles are posting a #FakeVideo and claiming the incident to have happened at #राजस्थान . This video is completely #Fake , no such incident has happened here. The matter is being investigated, strict action will be taken against those posting such videos.” on April 28, 2024.

@DCCyberKP tweeted “Some people are circulating a video on Social Media claiming it to be Kolkata, WB. However, no such incident happened,& the claim is entirely fake. Please ignore this message and report such profiles to us.Strict legal action is being taken against those spreading such fake news.” on April 27, 2024.

D-Intent’s Fact-Checking Results:


Propagandists are circulating unverified videos with false claims to set their narrative to create disharmony among communities & create panic. A sensitive video that shows a group of people executing a man by hanging him publicly has been shared, claiming that Hindu extremists punished a Dalit man for disrespecting and opposing an idol at a temple in Rajasthan. These assertions are unfounded and fraudulent, it is a reality. The Rajasthan Police refuted any involvement in the incident and pursued legal action against those disseminating the video under false pretences. We discovered that a guy named Narayan Gurjar was recently beaten to death in Bhilwara, Rajasthan, as a result of mutual rivalry; he was not publicly hanged, despite what some people stated the victim’s name to be. Despite being unconfirmed, the viral video appears to be a theatrical performance or event because audio from surrounding loudspeakers can be heard.Although Kolkata police have not confirmed any such event, it is also said to originate from West Bengal.


Fact : The fact is that these claims are fake and baseless. Rajasthan Police denied any such incident, and action is being taken against the people who are spreading the video with false claims. The viral video is unverified but seems to be an event/drama performance as nearby loudspeaker audio is also audible.It is also claimed to be from West Bengal, but no such incident was confirmed by Kolkata police.
