Facts Check: True, but not from India
News Verification: There are still netizens as long as they spread information on social media without first checking the truth. Fake news would be always a problem.
The beggar viral video has been widely shared on various social media platforms like facebook, twitter, WhatsApp, etc, claiming the video is from the capital city of India. However, this is not true, as the video is from Pakistan, not India.
As can be seen in the video how the beggar tricks, he is initially dragging himself on his feet, it can be seen in multiple frames where the beggar is seen in a similar movement. Initially, if you see the video you will feel like the video has been taken in some of the old places in Delhi.
The video was first uploaded in 2018, where the man pretended to be a disabled and looking for alms.
We found the video in a Pakistan based YouTube channel Pakistan Zindabad. The video was first uploaded on March 13, 201, titled as “Pakistani Beggar is the Best Actor”
Many other users and news outlets as well published this news claiming it to be from Lahore, Pakistan.
