However, when Nagpur Today investigated the matter, it has come to fore that the video clip circulating on social sites is not from the Nagpur but Hyderabad itself.

In video, a man can be seen attacked by group of hooligans where some Muslim women trying to intervene into the matter. However, upon a close inspection of the video, we found that the number plates of the vehicles began with ‘AP’, indicating that the video could possibly be from Andhra Pradesh, and not Nagpur. Besides voices in the video can be heard people speaking in Telugu and not in Marathi or Hindi.
