Screen Shots of Video

A video clip which was telecast on News First Kannada News Channel program in which an allegation has been made on a Hospital about killing of covid patients for money, has been widely circulated on Social Media platforms. It is claimed that this incident has taken place in Karnataka State. On fact check, the video is found to be totally fake and mixed with different videos in a single clip. This video originated from an Instagram account of one Mahanayaka_kannada. It is observed that the page has already deleted this video, and Account Admin has already apologised and clarified about the video as fake and edited by someone with malicious intent.

Here are the Screen Shots of Admin apologizing.

Facts about the Mixed Video Clips

  1. The video clip, where a person killing a man in a hospital bed, is not at all a covid patient and also not related to Karnataka state. It was an old video shared on youtube related to an incident from Bangladesh, May 19th 2020.
  2. The second clip is associated with a staff of a private hospital of Patiala thrashing to control a patient suffering from depression. The local police later took action regarding the Incident.

Hence it is a fake video being circulated with malicious intent to create fear and panic among the people.
