Manipur— Arambai Tenggol Activists and Policemen Extinguish Fire in Forest, Propagandists Circulate Video With False Claims: Fact-Check

A few days ago, a video surfaced on social media that showed a group of people in the uniform of Arambai Tenggol and policemen trying to take control of a fire. The video was shared with the claim that the State police and terrorists Arambai Tenggol were burning the forest just because they wanted to kill those tribal people who escaped from their village. Misinformation propaganda accounts, prominent being @CChingthiankim and @BaalduC, are circulating old videos with false claims to target a particular community and fuel the state’s violence.

The Truth

This is an old video from April before the ongoing Manipur Violence. We found the full video on Arambai Tenggol’s Facebook page, uploaded in April 2023. They were not burning the forest but extinguishing the fire.
