As soon as the video went viral, SMHoaxSlayer asked about the video to Kolkata Police.
A viral video having the below title is been circulated on social media.
Muslims beat up a Brahaman in West Bengal in front of daughter. In one's own home, no one should hear the sound of bells during offering puja. This is quite common in Muslim majority areas in West Bengal.
No media house id covering this torture on Hindus, while people are crying over and asking to accommodate Rohingya Muslims using Human Rights.”
The above information as per the Kolkata Police is false. The truth is that this is a two year old video, it was viral then too. In Sep 2017, Kolkata Police clarified to SMHoaxSlayer that the people beating the man are family members of a girl whom the man molested. This has nothing to to with Religion or Politics.
In reply to SMHoaxSlayer’s query, Kolkata Police Tweeted: “This is a wrong and mischievous post. This priest was manhandled by the family members of the victim girl where he allegedly molested her. FIR was registered vide no. P3-205 dated 31.08. 17,u/s 354/509 IPC and counter FIR was registered against people who assaulted the priest. vide no P3 Case no 206 dated 31.08. 17 u/s 34/323/341IPC.
