A video is going viral on social media in which one person is seen beating the other mercilessly with sticks. The man who is beating is screaming in pain and is pleading not to kill with folded hands. In this 50-second video, another man wearing a yellow T-shirt is seen standing, but he does not interfere.
Twitter user “Zaidu” posted this video, writing, “Graphic content: Chinese engineer captured in video beating Pakistani driver for depositing fake petrol bill in Karachi.” Under CPC, engineers from Power China Gansu Energy Company came to Pakistan. My dear Pakistani brothers and sisters, we should raise our voice against this behavior ”.
India Today Anti-Fake News War Room (AFWA) found that the claim being made with the viral video is misleading. The video is about four years old and is probably from Malaysia. In addition, “Zaidu” is a sarcastic Twitter handle that intentionally posts fake jokes. This is also mentioned in the bio of this Twitter handle.
