A yellow figure on the side of the road startles a group of motorcyclists on their way home.
This scary video of India is creating panic on the social network.
Many users mistake this figure for an alien, ghost or some other supernatural being. The men seen in the video are calling this figure a witch.
But what about the mysterious video?
The figure seen in the video is not a supernatural being. This is confirmed by the author of the video.
He explains to the fact-checking website “Alt News” that the figure was a naked woman.
“We were on our way home from the funeral of a friend’s mother. We were scared to see the woman and stopped at a shop near the street. When more people arrived, we asked if they had seen the woman too . T A witch. It was a woman, which was also confirmed by other passersby.” – Lamp Vs “Alt News”
Motorcyclist Deepak also said that he posted an excerpt of the video as a WhatsApp status. After this the short clip took its own life on social media.
To prove that he was the author of the video, he made a longer version of the video available to Alt News.
The local police department announced that they would investigate the matter.
According to sub-inspector Mohd Naushad, it is not yet clear why she was on the expressway at night without clothes.
How do we check videos for manipulation in the editorial office? It is important to take a look at the details. Individual frames of a video often reveal whether a video has been edited or not. We take a closer look at each picture and enlarge the individual sections. There are signs of a fake, for example: lack of motion blur, unnatural shadows or cutting errors. Strictly speaking, the general rule is: seriousness over speed. We always check facts and material carefully before publishing it. To do this, we work with a cross-editorial “verification team” with RTL, NTV, RTL2 and Radio NRW.
