Truth revealed in investigation
The manner in which the alleged terrorists are being arrested in the video creates suspicion. Because on the spot some people are also making a video of it. While such a place is taken over by the security forces. There is a ban on the movement of common people. When doubts arose, we checked the video…as the location of the video was stated to be Amaravati…so our local correspondent contacted the Amravati Police. So we were told that the viral video is not of real terrorists but part of a mock drill.
This mock drill was done to take stock of the preparedness to deal with the terrorists. In which a bus was parked at the Paratwada bus stand, there was no stampede, so people had already been removed. This entire mock drill was done on 14 October 2021 in view of the festival. Amravati police also provided us with a press note. In which information about this entire incident has been given. Thus our investigation and the press note of the police proved that the claim being made with the viral video is false. This video is not of the arrest of terrorists but part of a mock drill. Which was shared as real.
